Every day, 13 million gallons of water are pumped out of the New York City Transit system — assuming it isn't raining. During Superstorm Sandy, the challenges multiplied as hundreds of millions of gallons of salt water flooded the tunnels. What tools are used to measure water, assess damage, and help with repairs? How can the lessons learned during Sandy prepare us for future challenges?

Join Iain Watt (Director of Recovery & Resiliency at New York City Transit's Department of Subways) and Stuart Lerner (Senior VP of Transportation, Stantec) sit down for a conversation with Roland Lewis (President & CEO, Waterfront Alliance) about the water damage from Sandy and its larger implications for the transit system's future more than 4 years after the Superstorm.
