Association of Environmental Authorities
AEA is a trade association of publicly owned government agencies and private-sector businesses that provide or support clean water and solid waste utility service in New Jersey. The mission of AEA is to provide information, education and advocacy that help member organizations provide professional, efficient and cost-effective service to their ratepayers and to help the public understand and appreciate the work of its members.
The Value of AEA in Every Type of Membership
AEA has three classes of members: Regular or authority members, municipal members, and associate members. Any organization that does business within the publically owned water, wastewater, solid waste and recycling agency sector has a place at the AEA table. Our unique focus is the management, administrative and policy development aspects of public utility service.
