Rescuing construction of one of the world's largest underground sewage pumping stations is reported in the latest issue (vol 149 no 3) of the ICE/BGA Geotechnical Engineering journal. Designed to serve 13M people, India's Mumbai sewerage scheme began in the early 1980s but ran into difficulties when two 33m diameter, 35m deep rock shafts flooded. Work restarted in 1996. Summaries of this and other papers can be read at www. geotechnicaljournal. com
