2. Does Akron sit atop layers of limestone?

Even then, probably not a problem. It's the percolation over a large area that leads to the problems.

Eventually you get the kind of truly stunning countryside you find in parts of southern China--most of the area underlain by limestone strata is gone and the sinkholes have all linked up, and all that remains are fairly vertical, scattered outcroppings. Sometimes they're dense and impenetrable. Other times they tower over fields.
