In 1970, the State created Maryland Environmental Service to protect our natural resources. MES continues to fulfill this vital directive.
MES is a self-supporting, independent State agency, combining the public sector’s commitment to environmental protection with the private sector’s flexibility and responsiveness. The agency has no regulatory authority and receives no direct operating appropriations.
MES provides environmental and technical services to governmental and private sector partners and works on projects including dredged material management, solid waste management, water and wastewater treatment, composting, recycling, hazardous materials cleanup, stormwater services, and renewable energy. MES provides expert engineering, monitoring, and inspection services.
With over 900 diverse projects located across the Mid-Atlantic region, MES couples 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 preserving our natural resources for generations to come.
