EEA, Inc
. is an environmental consulting firm that has been performing environmental studies for both the public and private sectors since 1979. EEA's engineers and scientists have completed a wide variety of air quality and noise evaluations for projects throughout the Metropolitan New York/New Jersey region, and beyond. EEA's staff is familiar with federal, state and local air and noise regulations, as well as the broader environmental laws (NEPA, SEQRA, CEQRA) which govern air and noise emissions.
