Falls Church, VA, United States, 2010/07/23 - The Metro DC Utilities Blog has launched to provide timely information and insight from professionals in the Washington, DC area who are involved in roads, bridges, sewers, water treatment, gas lines, transit and electricity.
Do you have a professional interest in roads, bridges, water pipes, sewer treatment plants, public transit, and other public infrastructure issues in the Washington metro region? Are you civil engineer, construction crew leader, or journalist? Then point your browser to metro-dc-utilites-blog.com to get your fix for inside news and information.
The Metro DC Utilities Blog is intended to be a unique source of information and analysis for those who are working to build and maintain public infrastructure in the area: roads, bridges, water pipes, sewer pipes, gas lines, transit, and more. The blog will explore financing challenges, maintenance backlogs, demographic changes, political initiatives, and other topics -- all with a local twist -- that interest professionals in the field.
"The recent water main break in Boston and bridge collapse in Minneapolis are reminders that well-maintained and reliable infrastructure is an indispensable part of the quality of our lives," said Stuart Freudberg, environmental program director for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments. "We're launching this blog to provide a forum to explore the infrastructure trends and issues we face in the DC area."
"The blog will provide uniquely valuable information for the movers and shakers in this industry," said Eric Eckl, principal for Water Words That Work, LLC, which will produce the Metro DC Utilities Blog under contract to the council. "And for good measure, we’ll make it fun to read, too."
