2009 Report Card on America’s Infrastructure

Published annually by the American Society of Civil Engineers, this report critically examines 15 sectors of American infrastructure from aviation through wastewater. Unfortunately the cumulative card is a D, with a very troubling rating of D- for the water sector. The Society calculates that it would cost $2.2 trillion to remediate these poor showings for all the sectors. You can also view the 2007 report card for New Jersey; we rate a C-. This CRS report should also be perused – The Role of Public Works Infrastructure in Economic Stimulus.
