JAMAICA, NY (PIX11)—Neighbors say they wonder what lies beneath the water of one dirty pool in Jamaica. On 114th road, in the middle of the block, there is a pool so nasty and so dirty, that neighbors called PIX11 News for help.
"We tried the Health Department. They say on their website to report standing water. But they never came," said a frustrated neighbor, who did not want to be identified, in fear of retaliation.
"I do not want my kids anywhere near that. They could get sick," said another neighbor, with several kids, who complains the mosquitoes are fierce on the block, attracted to the standing water.
PIX 11 News called the Health Department and they promise to send an inspector to the house with 24 hours. They urge all homeowners in the City to report similar standing water situations to 311 immediately. PIX11 News will continue to follow this story.
