More on New York Steam Pipe Explosion

The Manhattan steam pipe explosion from this past summer was in the news again today. The explosions, just two blocks from my office, resulted in one death, many injuries, and more than a few frayed nerves. (The explosion was at 41st and Lexington, I’m at 40th and Park.)

The New York Times reported that a million dollar study done by Con Ed found that the explosion “was caused by a combination of heavy rainfall, leaks in underground water and sewer pipes and debris that clogged two critical devices designed to let water out of the steam main.”
