The Sandhogs - on The History Channel

Enter the World of the Sandhogs on The History Channel

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection manages New York City’s water supply, providing more than 1.1 billion gallons of water each day to more than 9 million residents throughout New York State through a complex network of nineteen reservoirs, three controlled lakes and 6,200 miles of water pipes, tunnels and aqueducts.

Tunnel No. 3 is one of the largest and most complex capital construction projects in New York City history and has often been referred to as one of the world’s engineering marvels.

Join The History Channel as they take their cameras more than 600 feet below the streets of NYC and shed light on the world of the sandhogs. Meet the men who call Tunnel No.3 home.
