Sinkhole closes road in New Durham after water main break


NEW DURHAM - A large sinkhole was discovered in New Durham Sunday afternoon.

Merrymeeting Lake Road was closed at the intersection of Powder Mill Road at the foot of Merrymeeting Lake due to a large sinkhole.

Officials believe that a break in the water main that feeds the nearby Powder Mill Fish Hatchery is what caused the sinkhole to form.

Fish & Game along with a maintenance crew worked to repair the road.
