The quality of today's US infrastructure (bridges, roads, power supplies, etc.) is deteriorating .  In fact, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the US infrastructure a grade of D+!

Please consider the following facts which help illuminate some current issues and pressures facing US infrastructure: 

  • -More than 66,000 bridges are structurally deficient
  • -More than 2 trillion gallons of drinking water are lost annually due to water main breaks
  • -Power generation facilities and the electric grid are being stretched to the limit
  • -The US population is expected to exceed over 400 million by 2050 placing higher demands on US infrastructure
  • -As structures and facilities are aging, they are being utilized more often which necessitates more frequent maintenance

As a company, UL seeks to promote safe living and working environments and has an expansive range of technical expertise to employ in these endeavors.    *To learn more about UL,
