A sinkhole has formed near the Pheasant Branch conservancy in Middleton.

A Public Works official says the recent rains may have contributed to the cause, along with the failure of a storm sewer or a pipe that was pulled apart.

Cleanup is already underway, but it could take a week or two to clear up.
