YONKERS -

Tests conducted at an apartment complex in Yonkers came back positive for asbestos.

Pipe insulation from 125 garages at the Crestwood Lake Apartment Complex tested positive for asbestos after a limited investigation.

Any amount of more than 1 percent is considered to be potentially dangerous. These results ranged from 6 to 25 percent.

Residents at the complex say they are concerned and that there have been problems with the piping for some time.

While symptoms may not develop for decades after exposure, doctors in the area are suggesting tenants get a health screening.

The city of Yonkers has received multiple complaints and has handed down violations urging the property owner to test crawl spaces, laundry facilities and apartments above the garages.

News 12 reached out to the Crestwood Lake Apartment Complex and its management company but has not heard back.
