National Engineers Week

If you live, work, or have ever sought shelter in a building that is structurally sound;
If you regularly cross a body of water, cloverleaf interchange or similar high overpass, confident the bridge will not fail;
If you can turn on lights, keep warm or cool, and dry your hair because of energy generated by a massive dam/hydroelectric source;
If you have enjoyed hike and bike trails and other municipal or National
Park amenities;
If you drive cross country, or just take your child to school via a network of strategically designed streets and highways;
If you can flush your toilet, never doubting that waste will be carried far from your home and appropriately treated so we can live free of waste-borne diseases…
Thank an engineer.
February 16-22 is “NATIONAL ENGINEERS WEEK.”
Celebrate the security of the safe, healthy society they create and maintain.
