Wilkes has several facilities dedicated to environmental science. The Center for Environmental Quality is a certified water quality laboratory that carries out hydrogeological investigations related to water supply development, contaminant migration, wetland mitigation, and land-based wastewater disposal. The Center for Geographic Information Sciences uses state-of-the-art technology to investigate environmental planning, assess watersheds, and analyze the spatial distribution of soils, wetlands, vegetation, land cover, and environmental pollution.
