    Contractors in central KY

    I apologize if this is not in the correct category.

    We've acquired some property in the Danville/Lancaster KY area and I need some help locating contractors. I've searched the internet and not much as turned up. The property has a low spot that collects water - it may be a small sink hole (which apparently are common in the area). I'm looking for contractors who:
    1. Can assess if there is a sink hole.
    2. If so, can recommend the best way to remediate and possibly perform the work so it doesn't continue to expand and be a problem in the future.
    3. Can possibly fill in the low spot and regrade so water doesn't accumulate.
    4. Install drainage to help route the water to a stream that borders the property


    I found one individual who said "I have some contractor friends who are looking for a place to dump fill and might regrade it if you let them dump for free." I'm not sure this is the best course of action - if there is a sink hole, filling it might work for the short term but I suspect that it will delay the necessary repairs.

    BTW, the U of K has quite a bit of good information on remediation of sinkholes and recommends dealing with them properly to prevent additional property damage.

    Thanks.

    Your local Soil and Water Conservation District office may be able to at least give you some technical advice. I don't know about sink holes but the local office here has pretty good technicians for issues in our area like erosion, stream side exclusion fencing etc.

    Maybe. I heard there's one for sale cheap. Apparently small sink holes are quite common in the area. The larger ones are rare but cause a lot of damage.
