ASCE Houston's local COPRI Chapter was approved by ASCE in June 2015, and specific goals and initiatives are being developed for the Houston group. COPRI serves its membership and society by uniting the disciplines working to sustainably develop, protect and restore coasts, oceans, ports, waterways, rivers and wetlands; integrating the key stakeholders into decision making processes; advancing technological state of art and practice; and influencing public policy. Visit the national website for more detialed information. 




Our events are posted to the Houston Branch Events Calendar, so be sure to check periodically for updates.


The first President of ASCE Houston - COPRI is Mr. Richard Ruchhoeft, PE with the Port of Houston Authority.  Please contact Richard if you would like to assist with the development of the Chapter.
