Brightwater Sinkhole in Bothell
This month a sinkhole was discovered in Bothell back in a wooded area right behind the DeLanda Dog Boarding business off of Bothell Way in Bothell. No one was hurt, but it was close to a housing area.
The hole was 15 feet deep and 30 feet wide. Enough to swallow a couple of cars. The area has been fenced off by contractors and the hole will be filled once they get a permit from the city.

Kenmore also had a Brightwater sink hole.
