The New York Interagency Engineering Council was established in July of 1979 by a group of professionals representing eight
public agencies and utility companies in the New York  metropolitan region.  

Since then, the NYIEC has grown to include sixteen Federal, State, and City agencies and utilities.

The NYIEC’s mission is to promote common endeavors in the areas of concern to its member organizations in order to enable the
member organizations to better fulfill their role in serving the public. Included are:
  • Exchange of information
