I-Day Houston was a great success! Please see the Event Gallery.
ASCE, in partnership with City of Houston District I and the League of Women Voters, is excited to announce “Infrastructure Day Houston” (I-Day Houston). Hosted by City of Houston District I Council Memebr James G. Rodriguez, in collaboration with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the League of Women Voters, I-Day Houston will be held Saturday, September 18, 2010, at the George R.

The event will be open to the public and will feature educational opportunities designed to highlight the impact of infrastructure on our quality of life as well as promote the importance of infrastructure investment. The audience for this event is the informed voter, and planned activities focus on two areas:

We need your support to make I-Day Houston a success. As engineers, we understand the importance of investing in our infrastructure. We need your help to convey this message to the voting public. Last year, “District I Day” had more than 1,000 attendees, and we are expecting attendance to increase this year. This event can reach a large audience, but we need your help.

So, what is Infrastructure?
According to Wikipedia, Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society or enterprise, or the services and facilities necessary for an economy to function. The term typically refers to the technical structures that support a society, such as roads, water supply, sewers, power grids, telecommunications, and so forth. Read more on Wikipedia>>
