South Central Service Cooperative contracts with the Institute for Environmental Assessment (IEA) to provide districts access to practical, cost-sensitive environmental engineering counsel and worker protection services.
The corporate headquarters and main laboratory are located in Brooklyn Park, MN. A satellite office is located in Mankato, with local consultants that provide ongoing environmental management services, and access to control services, drawing from a staff of more than 70 professionals, and 30 consultants who provide ongoing input in specialized areas.
At its inception, the Institute's mission was to find real-world, applicable patterns for addressing environmental risk and regulation. It has achieved and continues to excel in meeting that challenge, with both academic and regulatory acceptance for its often innovative approaches toward environmentally-sensitive sustainable development.
