One year after a sinkhole opened up and caused the collapse of the UPS Store, city leaders and business owners still are left without an explanation.
Parrish Place faced the brunt of the damage. The owner eventually had it demolished.
The city deemed other buildings unsafe and cracks turned up on others.
SC Department of Transportation helped respond to the incident and its crews stopped work on a nearby drainage project temporarily. The work has since restarted.
The State Insurance Reserve Fund at the Budget and Control Board hired an engineering firm to conduct a study into the sinkholes, according to an SCDOT spokesman.
The study took place back at the beginning of the year, but city officials and business owners haven't seen the results of the report. SCDOT hasn't seen it either.
City officials say multiple requests have been made for the report dating back almost six months.
Meanwhile, Georgetown looks different than it did a year ago.
The UPS store reopened about a week ago under new owners up the street from the old Parrish Place.
"We finally got it going and as far as I know, everybody is really excited to have us back," Kinsley Foltz, with Georgetown's UPS Store, said.
The Bank of America building remains shut down as unsafe, and banking customers use a mobile unit in the parking lot.
Cracks even reached the new courthouse and the city library.
"A lot of the areas in the perimeter of the incident were affected and who really knows how far it extends," Elkin Grete, an artist who paints outside the library, said.
He said the fact that no reason has been given for the cause of the sinkholes is concerning because of the possibility it could happen again.
A spokeswoman for the Budget and Control Board did not respond to a request for comment.
