America's civil engineers have given the country's infrastructure failing grades... they claim there isn't the leadership nor the will to take action. The overall grade which measured 15 infrastructure entities, such as dams, roads and bridges, got a ranking of D+; very poor! A sampling of the breakdown is as follows:
Drinking water: D-
Wastewater systems: D-
National Power Grid: D+
The executive Director of The American Society of Civil Engineers was quoted as saying, that there's a mentality in the United States of short-term fixes and hoping that they work; 'patch and pray,' as he put it. You get the picture!
What do you think the future price tag will be?!
