MTA considering underground reservoir to help with subway flooding

 

Stung by catastrophic subway flooding, the MTA Monday said it may build an underground reservoir in Queens to relieve the seemingly never-ending problem.

 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority may buy land near the flood-prone Parsons Blvd. subway station on the F line to build holding tanks to store water diverted from the tubes.

 

"To be honest, when it rains, I take the express bus - it's a mess down here," said Margaret Bonair, 45, of Cambria Heights. "It's about time they did something about the water."

It looks like flooding is always going to plague the subways no matter what they do. I don't see anything good happening to counter the flooding.

Seeing as water goes to the lowest place, the subway is a vulnerable place for water. A reservoir could help the problem, but how big are they thinking?
