|History of the Infrastructure Group|
In 1989-1990, the Met Section Board of Directors acknowledged the need for the formation of a new technical group, the purpose of which would be to address the issues of infrastructure engineering and the state of the public works sector.
A task committee, thus formed, was composed of Therios Lefcochilos, representing the Board of Directors, Wayne Tusa of the Engineering Management Group, Robert Hintersteiner of the Transportation Group, Bruce Schultz of the Environmental Engineering Group, and Joseph Beim of the Urban Planning Group. This committee decided to consolidate the activities of the participating groups within the scope of responsibility of a new infrastructure group.
A call for new members was published in the April 1990 Met Section newsletter brought the membership of the group to almost thirty professionals, representing a large spectrum of public agencies, the private sector, and the academia. The founding members of the group were the following:
Several task committees were formed to address in depth pertinent subjects on energy supply, transportation, maintenance, reconstruction, education & research, data based systems, waste management, urban redevelopment, and communication systems.
