Welcome to the internet home of the Maryland Section of the American Chemical Society (MD ACS). One of 190 local sections, we are based in Baltimore, Maryland. We work to promote awareness and interest in a wide variety of chemistry subjects through monthly dinner meetings, community outreach, and working with students in chemistry and science.
All chemists’ members of the Maryland Section of the American Chemical Society are invited to tour the facilities of one of the most efficient water filtration plants in Baltimore.
The plant has been around for more than 100 years. It is still one of the major accomplishments of chemists, engineers, environmental scientists and scientists in STEM related fields. The plant was pivotal in the improvement of public health in early 1900’s and along with two other filtration plants provides one of the most pure drinking water in the US to almost 2 million residents in the Baltimore area and surrounding counties.
The Maryland section celebrates the success of the last four years of high schools tours at the Montebello Water Filtration Plant-I in Baltimore. The tours are part of the Chemists Celebrate Earth Day which happens every year around the 22nd of April. The outstanding tour done by Robert Nuss, Director of the Water Quality Control Laboratories at the plant has created interest among the scientific community in the area. This year, an additional tour was prepared for adult chemists. Please join us in this interesting tour where you, your family, colleagues and college students can see chemistry as its best improving the life of the community.
