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.
The Maryland section celebrates the success of the last four years of tours at the Montebello Water Filtration Plant-I in Baltimore. 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, two additional tour were prepared for chemists. Please join us in this interesting second tour where you, colleagues and college students can see chemistry as its best improving the life of the community.
The plant has been around for more than 100 years. 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.
