With his dog Buster, Jack Canario, who lives in the home in background, peers into a sinkhole that developed sometime between Thursday morning and Friday morning where land has been excavated for a catch basin below a water tank on the east side of Oakdale. Two other sinkholes preceded it just a few yards away. It turns out the site once was a dump. City officials knew there had been a dump in the area, but thought it had been east of the water tank. Engineers will need to further inspect the site, which is on a bluff along the Stanislaus River.
