Trapped Under the Sea, by Neil Swidey
In the 1990s, work on a state-of-the-art treatment plant and a 10 mile long tunnel- its endpoint stretching farther from civilization than the earth deepest ocean trench – to carry waste out of the Boston harbor. When bad decisions and clashing corporations endangered the project, a team of commercial divers were sent on a perilous mission to rescue the stymied cleanup effort. Suspenseful yet humane, Trapped Under the Sea reminds us that behind every bridge, tower, and tunnel – behind the infrastructure that makes modern life possible – is unsung bravery and extraordinary sacrifice.
