About us

CEA owns, operates and maintains the Cave City and the Horse Cave Wastewater Treatment Plants and Pretreatment Plant which serve the Cave City, Park City, Mammoth Cave, Horse Cave, Bonnieville, and the Chalybeate area sewer systems. CEA also provides and maintains water service for Cave City, Park City and Mammoth Cave. Caveland Environmental Authority, Inc. has our own construction division.  The professional construction crews of CEA make it possible for us to do all of our own water and sewer construction which provides a significant cost savings for our customers. 


CEA’s Environmental Division provides quality portable restroom rentals and restroom trailers for the South Central Kentucky area.  Industrial pumping needs such as restaurant grease traps, car wash grit tanks, oil/water separators, industrial wastewater, surface and underground storage tanks, and sludge removal are easily met with our state of the art vacuum trucks.  The environmental division can respond quickly to emergency situations such as spills.  Be confident that your waste will be transported and disposed of at one of our own treatment plants.


Caveland Environmental Authority, Inc. is very involved within the community. CEA has sponsored local, state, and national organizations and public schools. CEA is a continuing sponsor of Environmental Education both for local schools and the general public. Caveland Environmental Authority, Inc. has and will continue to grow in our knowledge and expertise in an effort to meet the needs of the communities we serve while placing environmental protection as a top priority. CEA has and will continue to take great strides in preserving the resources of today to allow for a cleaner and safer environment for the generations of tomorrow.
