However, there is a few inches of water in the tunnel... and i planned on using a 1k fresnel and a generator to power it.
If i keep the extension cords above the water (taped them to the wall of the tunnel) should i be worry free?
any suggestions are welcome-

The one thing I would worry about would be the tape falling off. . . See if you can get some masonry screws and drill into the pipe to help hang would/could be a suggestion.

Try something like this or have an Electrician make you one. Plug it into the Genny first, away from the water, and run your stinger from it.
I agree, definitely use something more secure than gaff tape- it doesn't stick well to damp/dusty surfaces.
This goes without saying, but make sure your light stand is secure too, you definitely don't want the light head falling into the water either.

Definitely get a GFCI. Taping the cable is definitely not a safe way to go. This will help make it somewhat safer, but I am still not sure if this would be a safe setup. Talk to a licensed electrician because if anything goes wrong and someone gets hurt, telling the the authorities that you heard it was safe on an internet forum won't cut it. This is not meant as a criticism of this forum. The people on this forum are very smart and knowledgeable and usually the info is solid. I'm just saying this so you can legally cover your behind.
