World Trade Center Devastation
The September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center presented a critical pumping challenge. There was major flooding from underneath the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and flooding in the mile long train tunnels under the Hudson River. It was imperative that flood water was cleared to prevent a collapse. The Emergency Response Team (ERT) quickly coordinated and assembled a vast pump and pipe system, which successfully removed floodwaters within 24 hours.
