Tales from the New York underground!

About 600 feet underground, more or less. As we promised, we are ransacking other blogs for content during our “business trip” to NYC.  See the wondrous bldg blog to learn about the intricate–and old–underwater system that delivers NYC’s water, and the gargantuan five-decade project that will double Gotham’s water supply and protect it from the failure of one or both of the two century-old and badly-leaking aqueducts.

See this Popular Mechanic‘s story on the project, and this PDF factsheet provided by the New York Department of Environmental Protection.
