Pumping the tunnels
How long will it take to pump the tunnels out?

How long will it take until the tunnels are usable?

Is it possible to restore the tunnels?

RE: Pumping the tunnels
Probably weeks. Problem is there would have been unseen "weakening". There will no doubt be a huge "incident" at some point in the future, secondary to unseen damage. No

Days.

The pumps are ALWAYS on during normal operation. It's always pumping out Olympic swimming pools of water every day. The infrastructure is already there for pumping, let alone State and Federal aid coming in for this specific event. This is a first world city in a first world country. It's going to be cleared out easily.

I'm going with PoolBoy. Sounds like he knows a thing or two about pools of water. Wink

Re: Pumping the tunnels
The problem is they have to go slower to pump it out evenly.. It else there could be structure damage.

Here's hoping they get it under control before the harsher Winter temperatures kick in. Thumbsup

Yeah, that's what it sounds like, and what I am worried about. There is an article in today's paper reporting that the subway has a pump train for the problem and it pumps 1500 gallons a minute, and I estimate that comes out to about a million gallons a day; but I doubt if the machine has such endurance for for the millions of gallons in each of the subways.

On a radio report they said they have a similar specification commercial pump service for pumping lakes, and probably levies like Hurricane Katrina. Probably be a couple of days until they get a couple of those into town and installed.

November 11, is the first benchmark for restoring electric; haven't heard anything about opening the tunnels - hopefully, Emergency management is doing the old unexpected relief social-psychology.

The hardest hit residents are beginning to whine about rescue, and the Marathon, that is needed for money and the materials it can leave behind like portapotties and generators - the problem is the city needs thousands of generartors.

We should start a "pumping IN the tunnels" thread.
It can be about "sex you'd had in public places" .. or under "dangerous circumstances", or "when someone easily could have walked in" ??
