Pasco County testing drinking water after giant sinkhole brings contamination concerns

LAND O' LAKES, Fla. - Pasco County is testing the drinking water in a neighborhood after a huge sinkhole opened up on Friday. The county says the reason it's doing the testing has nothing to do with physical health. 

The water inside the large 230-foot wide, 50-foot deep sinkhole is full of toxic debris. Contaminants, chemicals and sewage swirling in the water. The fear is that it's going to get into the groundwater. The neighborhood runs on well water. Which is precisely why the county is testing the drinking water on Monday.

Two families now left homeless. Teresa Villa is haunted by the sound of her home crumbling around her.
