water, be gone!

Back in April we had a bit of discussion on the topic of how to keep water out of subway stations. Here now is a close-up of one of the kinds of devices hanging from cave ceilings.

It's nice, but how it works?

My guess is that water drips onto the surfaces and evaporates before these plate-like thingies get filled up. Consequently, no more dripping onto the platform. At least not from this very spot. Just my 2c.

Thanks for stopping by.

Water is a perpetual problem down there so a simple invention can be a good help...
