Infrastructure and ASCE's Failure to Act Study
Infrastructure is the backbone of the U.S. economy and a necessary input to every economic output. It's critical to every nation's prosperity and the public's health and welfare. The American Society of Civil Engineer's Failure to Act study demonstrates that deteriorating infrastructure, long known to be a public safety issue, has a cascading impact on our nation's economy, impacting business productivity, gross domestic product (GDP), employment, personal income and international competitiveness.
Carl Sutter, Senior Vice President of the Environment & Infrastructure Division at McMahon Associates in Neenah, will discuss the infrastructure and ASCE's Failure to Act study. He has 36 years of experience in all types of municipal and private infrastructure projects including highways, roads, streets, storm water management, and utility design and construction. In addition, Sutter has been promoting infrastructure investment in Wisconsin through a partnership between ASCE and the Wisconsin League of Women Voters by providing presentations around the state describing infrastructure condition, providing possible solutions, and emphasizing the positive economic impacts of this investment.
