The National Unwatering SWAT Team

From the October 31, 2012 New York Times - Subway Flooded - Million in the Dark by James Barron:

"The flooding in the tunnels in Lower Manhattan was so serious that the Federal Emergency Management Agency asked specialists from the Army Corps of Engineers to help.  The "unwatering team" as it is known - two hydrologists and two mechanical engineers from the corps with experience in draining flooded areas - flew to the airport in White Plains because it was one of the few in the area that was open."
