MDE's programs have research and development elements to enable Maryland to learn and implement new strategies for protecting the State's air, water and land resources. MDE maintains several databases of State environmental information, from ambient air quality to water quality and toxics data for Maryland's water bodies, from oil pollution control to safe drinking water data, among others. MDE plans to web-enable these databases in the future. Currently available on this section are small compilations of air, water, and land management data and maps and a catalog of MDE factsheets and publications.
