Assistance. Solutions. Knowledge.
Running a small community utility is hard work. Whether you're an operator or a manager, a board member or a local official, the need to understand regulations, responsibilities, and funding opportunities just keeps getting more complicated. How can a small staff keep up with it all?

With our help, that's how.
The National Environmental Services Center (NESC) exists to assist small and rural communities with their drinking water, wastewater, environmental training, solid waste, infrastructure security, and utility management needs and to help them find solutions to problems they face. Our staff of environmental specialists, engineers, certified operators, technical writers, editors, and trainers understand the latest technologies, regulations, and industry developments. Over the last 30 years, we've helped thousands of communities find solutions to their environmental problems. We've also helped thousands of individuals learn more about environmental issues.
And the best part is: nearly everything we do is free.
NESC's services include:
- . Toll-free technical assistance from our staff of certified operators, engineers, and scientists;
