$12.5M Settlement Announced in Sinkhole Case that Displaced Families

A $12.5 million settlement was announced Tuesday in the lawsuit involving a massive sinkhole in Fraser that displaced several families on Christmas Eve in 2016. 

The Macomb Interceptor Drain Drainage District board sued the insurance company for three contractors in April 2019, claiming human error was to blame for circumstances that opened a crack in the MIDDD sanitary sewer pipe, caused infiltration of sand into the pipe, and eventually caused the collapse of the sewer and the ground above on 15 Mile Road at Eberlein Drive. The sinkhole measured approximately 50 feet wide, 260 feet long and 65 feet deep – approximately the size of a football field.
