YONKERS - A Yonkers resident is concerned about water that has been flowing from his backyard into the street for months.

Behind Carmine Cursio's property, located at 81 Remsen Road, is an aqueduct that is owned by New York City.

Cursio's father dug a trench to avoid the risk of the water running near the home, but water flows all day and night.

The Department of Environmental Protection says it has done two water tests to determine where the water is flowing from, but the results are inconclusive.

The DEP says it is bringing in special equipment this week to drill into the ground and further test the water.

Cursio said that he did have a private test, which he says showed the water was coming from the aqueduct behind his property.
