2008 Maine ASCE Infrastructure Report Card

Civil Engineering is a broad field dealing with the planning, design, construction, maintenance and management of infrastructure networks and the safety of the public. Civil Engineering today includes power plants, bridges, roads, railways, runways, structures, retaining walls, foundations, water supply, irrigation, sewer, flood control, transportation and the protection of the natural environment.

The maintenance and improvement of Maine's infrastructure is vital to our economy, health, safety, security and to the environment.

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.
