This article investigates the terrorist plot to blow up a slurry wall that stops the Hudson River from flooding the site where the World Trade Center once stood. According to the terrorists' plan, with the dike breached, water would pour into the cavity left by the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and also undermine nearby skyscrapers and flood the trans-Hudson tunnels that carry PATH trains to New York from New Jersey.
