Welcome to NUCA – Iowa
Representing Utility & Excavation Contractors
The National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) of Iowa is a strong association who has represented the interests of the underground contracting community for decades. We have more than 60 members – comprised of utility and general contractors and suppliers in the public utility arena such as communications, gas, sewer and fiber optic work – both trench and trenchless technologies. Representing nearly 2,000 contractors, suppliers, and manufacturers nation wide, NUCA is the only organization focusing solely for the water, sewer, gas, underground utility construction, and excavation industry.
NUCA was founded in 1964 by individuals seeking to unify utility contractors in order to effectively tackle problems and improve general conditions within the industry. Today, with its strong membership and the affiliation of 40 state and local chapters, NUCA maintains a wide range of benefits, educational opportunities, and services designed specifically for YOU!
We are dedicated to supporting direct industry legislation and regulation, creating formal and informal coalitions to influence issues impacting the industry and promoting safety awareness and training. NUCA of Iowa also offers some great networking opportunities through our annual banquet, spring outing and golf outing
