Given today’s increasing climate concerns and the possibility of increased impacts from natural disasters it is more important than ever for Virginia's infrastructure to be resilient.

According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), interdisciplinary collaboration—social, economic, political, historical, disaster management, and planning—can help solve some of the most challenging civil engineering issues. 


This ASCE infographic illustrates some of the challenges we may be facing:
