ASCE has undertaken the role of elevating the State of the Art of lifeline engineering by establishing an interim Committee on Lifeline Engineering (CLEE). Lifelines are defined as utilities and transportation systems. The present technology in the field is dangerously underdeveloped and no major organization has been committed to the problems. The Society's goals and structure correspond uniquely with the dimensions of the problem. Lifelines represent approximately half of the economic value vulnerable to earthquakes and they have implications of public health and welfare in the aftermath of earthquakes.
