Maryland Environmental Service

When Maryland’s Governor and legislators created the Maryland Environmental Service in 1970, the agency’s mission was clear — protect and enhance the state’s air, land and water resources. Thirty-six years later, this independent state agency continues to take on projects that fulfill this vital directive.    
Today, we work with both governmental and private sector clients to find innovative solutions to some of the most complex environmental challenges.  Our goal is to combine the public sector’s commitment to environmental protection with the private sector’s efficiencies, flexibility and responsiveness. 
The agency offers its services at competitive rates and works on projects including water and wastewater treatment, solid waste management, composting and organic products marketing, recycling and marketing of recovered materials, dredged material management and recycling, hazardous materials cleanup and engineering, monitoring and inspection services.
639 Service employees are involved in more than 402 environmental projects located in four states — projects that range in cost from $2,800 to $6.3 million.  Our environmental scientists and engineers are available for analytical or engineering problems.  Service employees design and operate state-of-the-art facilities.  The agency’s management team is made up of seasoned veterans of facility operations.   
Our wealth of expertise is coupled with a commitment to strict environmental compliance and safe work practices. For more than three decades, the Service has been dedicated to preserving Maryland’s natural treasures. This commitment is stronger today than ever before.
