Helping Small Communities for more than 30 years
For more than 30 years, the National Environmental Services Center (NESC) has helped thousands of small, rural communities with their drinking water, wastewater, environmental training, infrastructure resilience, and utility management needs–leading them to solutions to the problems they face.
Our staff of environmental specialists, engineers, certified operators, writers, editors, and trainers understands the latest technologies, regulations, and industry developments. We use this understanding to sort through journal articles, public relations media releases, personal interviews, and many other information sources so we can provide you with objective information and assist you in making intelligent decisions that affect your communities.
NESC is funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service and is based at West Virginia University (WVU).
NESC is based at West Virginia University (WVU), one of the nation’s major research institutions. WVU is located in Morgantown, West Virginia, 75 miles south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. NESC is housed at 886 Chestnut Ridge Road, PO Box 6893, Morgantown, WV 26506-6893.
