Washington Report Card Update!
ASCE Seattle Section is looking for volunteers to act as leads for a few fields (Aviation, Drinking Water, Energy, Hazardous Waste, Transit). The report card is a way for Civil Engineers to better communicate with the general public about the current condition and performance of the country's infrastructure. In 2013,   Washington state's report card  was graded with a C! In 2017, the country's overall grade was event lower, at D+!

If you are interested in leading or supporting us in updating the Report Card, please contact Erik Ellingsen at More info on the report card can be found at:
