Port Authority acknowledges water leak at WTC site

Agency had denied breach at complex’s protective wall several months ago



The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey admitted to a water leak at the World Trade Center that caused construction delays at the site, after denying any such problem at the complex in August.

Construction workers reported hearing water rushing behind an underground concrete wall that encases the 16-acre site and protects it from the Hudson River, DNAinfo reported several months ago.
