Our nation’s aging infrastructure is a common theme in the news. We hear about deteriorating roads, high-risk dams, and old and undersized treatment plants. Wastewater infrastructure is critical to society’s daily functions, health, and safety, yet it is one of the lowest-rated aspects of our country’s framework. Improving wastewater infrastructure involves billions of dollars of repair, rehabilitation, and new construction work. A key to long-term success is to select quality and resilient construction solutions.

During this session we will investigate resilient concrete wastewater solutions. We will discuss what resilience is and why resilient construction has become a focal point in both centralized and decentralized wastewater projects across the country.

We will discuss what factors contribute to resilience and how resilient solutions can improve safety, reduce construction time, reduce costs,
and extend service life. Finally, we will investigate options for bolstering concrete’s durability while also reducing concrete’s carbon footprint.
