2012 Maine ASCE Infrastructure Report Card

The maintenance and improvement of Maine's infrastructure is vital to our economy, health, safety, security and to the environment. The Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (Maine Section ASCE) represents over 750 civil engineering professionals who live and work in the State of Maine. As a public service to the residents of Maine, a team of engineers and industry experts volunteered hundreds of hours in both 2008 and 2012 to review public records and provide an overview of infrastructure in Maine. The 19 lead authors in 2012 have a combined 460 years of experience. The first report was published in December 2008. This 2012 report card provides an update in order to determine progress or decline in each infrastructure area since 2008.

The Maine Section ASCE analyzed the following fundamental components of each infrastructure area: existing conditions, capacity, operations & maintenance or deferred maintenance, public safety & security, risk and consequences of failure, and, current and projected levels of funding.

As with the national report cards produced by ASCE, the purpose of this state report card is to raise public awareness of the importance of a modern and well-maintained infrastructure. Our infrastructure cannot be taken for granted and requires daily maintenance and continuous planning.  Maine ASCE will update this report within 5-years.  If you have any questions or comments, contact us by email at reportcard@maineasce.org.
