A Detroit Sinkhole Is Now a Fish Pond

Detroiters try to make the best of not-ideal situations.

Residents around Hull Street and McNichols turn a sinkhole into a fish pond, Kim Russell of WXYZ reports.

Neighbors decided to populate the four-year-old hole with fish so they could enjoy it. It's stocked with bluegill, goldfish and carp. People like watching the fish and feeding them. Some apparently even go fishing there.

"We like our fish, but honestly we'd like the road fixed," resident Pete Bolden tells Russell.

Neighbors say the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department started work on the hole, but never finished. That department says it has no record of the work being done or requests to have it fixed.

Road markings show a utility company started work there, the city says. Detroit Edison tells WXYZ will send a crew to investigate.
