Saint Louis University and the American Society of Civil Engineers hosts the St. Louis Infrastructure Symposium on Oct. 14 from 12:30 - 5 p.m. in the Busch Student Center. This symposium allows agencies to discuss major infrastructure projects in the region and funding needs, as well as invites the public to have a voice on the subject. The general public, political figures, agencies, media, students and the engineering community are welcome to attend.
The program is a half-day, interactive event focused on St. Louis’ infrastructure presented by major public agencies. Agencies will express the importance of improving the city’s infrastructure.
Audience interaction includes a poll on where St. Louis citizens should be spending their dollars. A round table discussion will follow, addressing the results of the audience poll.
Presentations will be made by representatives from the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, MoDOT, Missouri American Water Company, the St. Louis Area Earthquake Hazards Mapping Project and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Goals and Objectives:
- Allow agencies to express their infrastructure needs to the public
- Integrate ASCE’s Infrastructure report card results with local issues
- Actively engage the public by both educating them about infrastructure needs and allowing them to have a voice in where to spend their dollar
- Involve the public, political figures, agencies, media and engineering community in an interactive event
