In Light of Reports of Leaks in Slurry Wall at Ground Zero, 9-11
Firefighter Families Call for Immediate Removal of 9-11 Victims
Remains from Basement Museum
Parents and Families of 9-11 Firefighters and WTC Victims call for the immediate removal of 9--11 Victims Remains from the basement of the 9-11 Museum following reports of possible leaks in the slurry wall that holds back the Hudson River at the WTC site.
Remains must be moved immediately to the above-ground pavilion building where the restaurant and gift shop and office space is located. Surely these remains are at least as deserving of a flood-proof area as the gift shop and restaurant are! Then a permanent plaza-level tomb must be built for these remains, which is the desire of the majority of families and can be easily done, considering the space they now occupy is quite small.
It is very upsetting for families to think that their loved ones' remains would be the first items lost in the basement of the museum if water was to gush into the site. These remain fragments are so fragile that if they are damaged or lost, they are gone forever.
For over ten years, families have begged the city not to house their loved ones remains in such a vulnerable location. There is no logical reason why they would put the remains of the victims in an area that would be the first to be flooded if the slurry wall is compromised.
Add this latest revelation regarding the slurry wall to the fact that the museum is located in a Flood Zone "A" location and you have a disaster waiting to happen. Consequently, the Human Remains of the 9/11 dead must be re-located to ground level immediately!
