BROOKLYN - A sinking feeling in Bay Ridge has local leaders calling for a sewage system overhaul.

Sen. Marty Golden (R-Brooklyn) is among the officials who say a monitoring system is needed following the more than half a dozen sinkholes that destroyed area roads in the past few months.

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has blamed two of the latest collapses on 100-year-old pipes. However, a DEP spokesperson insists there is no systematic problem with the sewer system and that the timing of the sinkholes is a coincidence.
