Huge sinkhole with glowing green liquid appears on Toronto street


‘Who you gonna call?’ Huge sinkhole with a glowing green liquid oozing out is found on Toronto street – as city officials say its only non-toxic dye

  •  A green liquid appeared in a large sinkhole on a Toronto, Canada, street
  • City officials said the green coloring was due to a non-toxic dye they administered into the sinkhole 
  • People on social media joked the liquid was connected to the Hulk and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • Repairs will begin after the source of the sinkhole is determined

A massive sinkhole with a glowing green, slime-like liquid seeping out was spotted in in Toronto on Friday.

The unexpected occurrence happened on Hastings Avenue near Gerrard Street East. 

Photos shared by Richard Southern of 680News showed the green water, reminiscent of ‘Flubber’ and the ghouls from ‘Ghostbusters, oozing out of the cracked concrete in the middle of a residential street.

Toronto Water: 'In order to determine if the sinkhole is connected to the underlying sewer, a dye test was conducted using a green non-toxic dye, which is added to the sinkhole while monitoring the closest manhole downstream to look for traces of the dye in the sewer'

Neighbors shouldn’t worry about surprising sight because it’s actually a common procedure, city officials said.

‘Toronto Water staff inspected the sinkhole yesterday evening. Sinkholes can be the result of a damaged or collapsed sewer,’ a spokesperson told 680News.

‘In order to determine if the sinkhole is connected to the underlying sewer, a dye test was conducted using a green non-toxic dye, which is added to the sinkhole while monitoring the closest manhole downstream to look for traces of the dye in the sewer.’

Some people cracked jokes about the green water on social media after photo surfaced.

‘I’d probably call the Ghostbusters,’ one person wrote.  

‘This made me actually laugh out loud. I now need to have pizza for dinner,’ one man said, referencing the sewer-dwelling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Another quipped that people should call Nickelodeon’s legal team since the liquid resembled the TV channel’s infamous green slime.

City officials told 680News that workers used CCTV in the sewer to find the source of the problem on Friday morning.

Repairs will begin after the source of the sinkhole is determined.
