In October 2016, the SAME Tulsa Post held a workshop focused on extending the life of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers aging infrastructure. This first-of-its-kind Post Issues Workshop brought together Sustaining Member firms and government agencies to collaborate and resolve issues at the local level.
The intent of the Post Issues Workshops, part of the SAME Industry-Government Engagement Plan, is to implement solutions locally then report the impact of those solutions nationally.
The genesis of the Tulsa workshop came from Dan Keithline of Keithline Engineering, one of the Tulsa Post’s Small Business sustaining Members. He had recently completed an innovative project to restore and improve a water supply intake at Waurika Lake in southwestern Oklahoma, and was interested in sharing the lessons learned. Keithline submitted a white paper on the project to the SAME National Office, which recommended the Post hold an event on extending the life of the USACE’s gaining infrastructure.
The Post formed a committee of private sector and government members that planned and organized a workshop, which included three presentations and a moderated panel discussion.
