Welcome to the ASCE Wichita Branch

The Wichita Branch has been serving southern and western Kansas since 1962.  Branch activities include monthly meetings, joint meetings with other organizations, and community service activities, such as Adopt-A-Highway.

Recent presentations have included the 135th St. – Subsidence Study, Direct In-Line Pump (DIP) System, and the Ninnescah River Streambank Stabilization Project.  Upcoming events include a joint meeting with the Smoky Valley Chapter of KSPE, an Adopt-A-Highway trash pick-up, and a joint site tour meeting with WSPE.  As always, we’ll finish off the year with our annual Steak Fry in June!

Also, elections will be held in May and we encourage anyone interested in joining the board to contact one of our officers.  ASCE members and non-members are welcome to attend any event, but you must be a member to join the board.

Please feel free to contact any of the Branch board members for information on ASCE and our local Branch.  Thanks for visiting our website, and I hope to see you at our next event!

President - Damian A. Rottinghaus, P.E.

Serving your local branch can be quite rewarding and it’s a great way to network with other local professionals. Contact any current board member for more information.

 

 

 

ASCE’s 2013 Report Card for

America’s Infrastructure

Every family and business needs infrastructure to

thrive– from your road to work, to your internet, to

the pipes bringing clean water to your house.  In a

new app format, the American Society of Civil

Engineers’ 2013 Report Card for America’s

Infrastructure puts the most comprehensive and

clear reference available on America’s infrastructure

in your pocket. Complete with videos, state profiles,

and interactive content, this app shows how your

state’s infrastructure is doing and what needs

attention. Share the app with friends, coworkers, LinkedIn groups, or even your elected officials. Download the Report Card at www.infrastructurereportcard.org.

Now the 2013 Report Card grades are in, and America’s cumulative GPA for infrastructure rose slightly to a D+. The grades in 2013 ranged from a high of B- for solid waste to a low of D- for inland waterways and levees. Solid waste, drinking water, wastewater, roads, and bridges all saw incremental improvements, and rail jumped from a C- to a C+. No categories saw a decline in grade this year.

The 2013 Report Card demonstrates that we can improve the current condition of our nation’s infrastructure — when investments are made and projects move forward, the grades rise. For example, greater private investment for efficiency and connectivity brought improvements in the rail category; renewed efforts in cities and states helped address some of the nation’s most vulnerable bridges; and, several categories benefited from short-term boosts in federal funding.

We invite you to take a deeper look at the nation’s infrastructure conditions in the 2013 Report Card – from the state infrastructure facts, to the interactive charts, to our three key solutions. Click here to see the Report Card.
