As expected, the Society finds that the nation’s current infrastructure is grossly underfunded and in need of significant repair. One of the surprises in the report card—particularly to geosynthetics professionals—is that solid waste management has been downgraded. Solid waste has routinely been the highest-rated sector of American infrastructure, in part because of its requirement to use geosynthetics.
