Residents: Standing water pool causing foul odor

Residents in Co-op City say a pool of standing water is creating a foul odor in the air and they want it cleaned up.

The standing water is on a grassy back near the western side of the intersection of Hutchinson River Parkway East and Einstein Loop South. Residents say many people wait for buses or walk to the subway in the area.

The Department of Environmental Protection did not return calls for comment.
