Portland replaced part of its water supply network with pipes containing 4 turbines. "As water flows through the pipes, the turbines spin and power attached generators, which then feed energy back into the city’s electrical grid." What do you think of the project?
Water flowing through the city's pipes will generate electricity like a dam with none of the environmental consequences

The Eiffel Tower is now outfitted with 17-foot turbines that are meant to blend with the historic structure while making a statement about renewable energy. What do you think of the change?

This is exactly the kind of thing we should be doing with longstanding monuments. They should reflect the change of the world around them, not cling to the past that created them.

The roof on Atlanta's new stadium will have "8 operable panels that appear to swivel open, revealing a 100,000 sq ft, oval-shaped oculus over the center of the field." Read about the project: http://ow.ly/JJjWY

On President's Day, Herbert Hoover's insights on engineering: "It is a great profession. There is the fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs and homes to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comforts of life. That is the engineer's high privilege." http://ow.ly/IYxxR

The Ward County project involved the design and construction of 21 groundwater wells, 65 miles of pipeline, and 4 booster pump stations in just 18 months. The project, which mitigated a water supply crisis in West Texas, is 1 of 5 finalists to be honored at OPAL Gala in Arlington, VA this week. Be there to witness the best in the profession: http://ow.ly/Kjmxc.

"America’s crumbling infrastructure: It’s not a sexy problem, but it is a scary one." Catch the Last Week Tonight with John Oliver segment on infrastructure. And in case you had any doubts, we like to think we know infrastructure as well as Golden Retrievers know tennis balls. (Warning: adult language ahead!)
