Articles and Publications

For nearly 30 years, the National Environmental Services Center (NESC) published several newsletters and magazines, including On Tap, E-Train, Pipeline, and the Small Flows Quarterly. Eventually, these publications reached more than 100,000 subscribers. In 2009, as a result of budget cuts, NESC began publishing them in online versions only.

Beginning in 2014, we will continue this evolution by presenting individual articles as we develop them. Because we will no longer have to wait for multiple articles to wend their way through creation, review, revision, and layout, we can get the information to you more quickly. Rest assured that all the articles and publications you’ve enjoyed in the past are still available on this site.
To view these articles, please go to www.nesc.wvu.edu/ontap.cfm

If you are looking for more information about a particular water-related topic, we encourage you to use the Google site feature below, which searches the information on the NESC website. After 35 years, chances are we’ve covered it!

To view our publications you may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader. The reader is free software that lets you view and print Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

About Small Flows

The magazine features news, technical, and educational articles about a variety of small community wastewater issues, including treatment technologies, regulations, and finance. Included as an insert are peer-reviewed research journal articles. Due to funding cuts in Small Flows magazine is now a Bi-Annual publication.
