*AEA—The Association of Environmental Authorities of NJ is a 40-year-old association of public water, wastewater, solid waste and recycling service providers in New Jersey, primarily utilities authorities, and also including municipal utilities departments and vendors in the public utility sector. Our focus is utility management, long-range planning, leadership and public policy.

**ACEC—ACECNJ proudly celebrates the accomplishments of the engineering industry each year with its annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) Program. Engineering Excellence Awards recognizes and celebrates engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of skill and ingenuity among firms.

***NACWA—The emergence of NACWA as a nationally-recognized leader in environmental policy and a sought-after technical resource on water quality and ecosystem protection issues has paralleled the maturation of the nation's most successful environmental law - the Clean Water Act. NACWA was established in 1970 by a group of individuals representing 22 large municipal sewerage agencies. They came together to secure federal funding for municipal wastewater treatment and discuss emerging national interest in improving the quality of the nation's waters. Based upon the shared goal of effectively representing the interests and priorities of publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs), they formed NACWA—the National Association of Clean Water Agencies.
