DYKER HEIGHTS - Some Dyker Heights residents say a broken water main is causing them some serious headaches.

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) says it fixed the broken water main on 76th Street yesterday. However, residents say it?s been an ongoing issue.

Leonard Bille says the water main in front of his house has leaked at least six times in the past 15 years, and that his neighbors have had to patch up theirs several times as well.

A representative from the DEP said he could not comment on why it?s been an issue in years past.
