Description

WNBC finds that "substantial undisputed - but unpublicized - leaks in the City's largest water supply tunnel threaten to undermine the tunnel's integrity and collapse it. So much water is leaking that new wetlands have been created along the tunnel's route. City engineers have known about the increasing leaks for almost ten years, but no repairs were made, and the public was not told about the threat."
