See a Water Tank Spring a 360-Degree Leak

New, 1 comment

Water tanks: our reliable rooftop reservoirs that occasionally stand in as public art projects. Did you know that they can spring leaks that send water squirting out the entire circumference of the tank? Unless you're attempting to extinguish a Towering Inferno [spoiler alert!], that's no good. This leaking tank atop NYU-Poly at MetroTech was caused by a damaged sensor that lowered water levels too far and allowed the boards to warp, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
