A long-term repair project is underway at Marquez High School in Huntington Park, where some pavement collapsed on a playground because of an underground “man-made water-collection basin,” authorities said Tuesday.

The problem has been slowly developing at the campus at 6361 Cottage St. since January, and is “not a sinkhole,” said Elvia Cano of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The water-collection system includes tanks that store rainwater, Cano said.

Crews cordoned off a 45- by-75-foot section of the pavement on one of the basketball courts, and classes have been operating normally, Cano said.
