In 1970, Maryland’s Governor and legislators created Maryland Environmental Service to protect the state’s air, land and water resources. Today, our independent state agency continues to fulfill this vital directive.
We have no regulatory authority and we receive no direct appropriations. Our agency is a self-supporting, not-for-profit public corporation, combining the public sector’s commitment to environmental protection with the private sector’s flexibility and responsiveness.
MES provides services at competitive rates to government and private sector clients and works on projects including water and wastewater treatment, solid waste management, composting, recycling, dredged material management, hazardous materials cleanup, and renewable energy. We provide expert engineering, monitoring and inspection services.
With 731 diverse projects located in three states, ranging in cost from $580 to $25 million, we couple operational expertise with a commitment to strict environmental compliance and safe work practices.
Maryland Environmental Service remains focused on finding innovative solutions to our region’s most complex environmental challenges, and on preserving our region’s natural resources for generations to come.
