Recognizing Civil Engineering's Impact on Quality of Life
March 19, 2008

From a solution to arsenic poisoning on the Indian subcontinent to a light rail transit project in San Diego, the finalists for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) 2008 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) Award represent the profession’s innovative spirit and its commitment to public health, safety and welfare. Selected from a group of 26 entries, this year’s finalists are outstanding examples of how civil engineering can contribute to a community’s economic success and improve residents’ quality of life.
