California’s infrastructure is out of date and needs a $65 billion investment, a civil engineering group said Thursday.
The American Society of Civil Engineers  rated infrastructure from aviation facilities to wastewater systems and gave an overall grade of “C” in a report that seeks to call attention to deficiencies.
The worst grade went to levee and flood control systems, earning a “D” grade.
The best grade went to solid waste facilities, which earned a “B."
“To remain a strong and prosperous state, we must maintain and continue to improve infrastructure that makes California’s quality of life second to none.” said Yaz Emrani, co-chairman of the committee that issued the report card.
More than 100 civil engineering professionals contributed by analyzing technical reports, inspection records, budgets, maintenance schedules and other documents.
