It opened up a couple of weeks ago and has been eating truckload after truckload of gravel since then.
Residents nearby are worried about what dangers lie within the 130-foot-deep sinkhole off Hack Wilson Way.
Pat Arnold, a substitute teacher who lives in one of the two dozen townhouses around the sinkhole, said he worries about the hole because of all the children in the neighborhood.
They skateboard and play basketball in a parking lot adjacent to the hole, which Arnold estimates is no more than 10 or 15 feet across. Underneath sunny skies Tuesday afternoon, several children wearing backpacks walked past the sinkhole on their way home from school.
Using headlamps and rappelling equipment, several people went into the hole recently to map it, said Danny Clark, Berkeley County administrator for the Division of Highways.
