STILLWATER, N.Y. (AP) — A park in upstate New York has been flooded by 1 million gallons of water and turned into a lake.

The Post-Star reports ( ) that Saratoga Monument Park has been flooded with water from an unknown source since last year. The accidental lake is estimated to be 3 feet deep and stretches more than 200 yards.

Officials believe a water main break or a drainage problem caused the flood.

The extensive flooding has spread into the cemetery next to the park as well.

Saratoga National Park Superintendent Amy Bracewell says the National Parks Service will examine all options. Park officials say they will drain the lake and dig a test pit to determine the cause of flooding.

Tests are scheduled for Monday.
