WHO WE ARE

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Chicago Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Chicago Post membership.

Design Insights for Fast Tracking Construction on a Large Water Supply Project
This presentation details design decisions for a water supply project in Chicagoland with approximately 10 miles of large diameter water transmission main, 5 miles of cured-in-place pipe, 2 pump stations, and a standpipe. All of this is being designed and constructed within 20 months. Key decisions were made to accelerate design and fast track the construction schedule. Insights into pre-procurement, permitting, easement and property acquisition, and others are discussed. 

Kate Stephens has been working as a water market E.I.T with Stanley Consultants since August 2015. In May 2017 she was recognized as a Young Water Professional by Water and Waste Digest. She earned a BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2013, and an MS in Environmental Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2017. Her career goal is to become an expert in wastewater reuse technologies (both for energy and nutrient cycles).
