    Karst Areas (0) Description: This feature class shows the distribution of areas that contain one or more sinkholes throughout the state of Illinois. Areas that contain sinkholes are susceptible to aquifer contamination and may also lack the stability required for certain land-uses. Sinkholes are one of the major indicators of karst terrains.

The caves of the Sinkhole Plain in Monroe and St. Clair counties are the most numerous and interesting in the state. In Illinois, caves are found in areas of major limestone or dolomite outcrops called karsts.

A few animals have adapted to the dark, cool and humid environment of the deep caves. Distribution of areas that contain one or more sinkholes throughout the state of Illinois. Areas that contain sinkholes are susceptible to aquifer contamination and may also lack the stability required for certain land-uses.

Sinkholes are one of the major indicators of karst terrains. Hundreds of sinkholes occur each year in many parts of the United States, causing significant property losses.

Great potential exists for casualties unless measures are taken to minimize groundwater depletion and the increases in surface water infiltration that precipitate sinkholes. George Sowers examines the mechanisms of sinkhole formation in limestone (or karst terrain), methods for Reviews: 1.

The shallow karst aquifer of Illinois' sinkhole plain is an important source of fresh, potable water for about half of the residents living in the karst regions of St.

Clair, Monroe and Randolph Counties. Nitrate concentrations in excess of the US Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA) drinking water standard of 10 mg N/l have been found in about 16% of the wells in the sinkhole plain.

Subsidence from sinkhole collapse is a common occurrence in areas underlain by water-soluble rocks such as carbonate and evaporite rocks, typical of karst terrain.

Almost all 50 States within the United States (excluding Delaware and Rhode Island) have karst areas, with sinkhole damage highest in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania.

The underground water of karst topography carves our impressive channels and caves that are susceptible to collapse from the surface. When enough limestone is eroded from underground, a sinkhole (also called a doline) may develop.

Sinkholes are depressions that form when a portion of the lithosphere below is eroded away.
