New ASCE Report Promotes Understanding of Subsurface Utility Engineering
Reston, Va. – Subsurface utility engineering (SUE) is ideally knowing as much about a subsurface project prior to starting the design process; incorporating technology to identify, characterize, and map underground utility facilities. ASCE’s new book, Subsurface Utility Engineering for Municipalities: Prequalification Criteria and Scope of Work Guide, is a resource for understanding SUE and bringing up-to-date practices to the application of SUE for public works projects.
This book answers basic questions about SUE, such as, “What is it?”, “How is it used?”, and “What is its future?” Also included are chapters on consultant prequalification criteria and a checklist of scoping items that affect costs and scheduling.
This book will be a valuable resource to those in the water and wastewater industry, especially water engineers and designers.
