Environmental Commission (EC)
The Environmental Commission was established in 1975 by the Board of County Commissioners to:
- Promote recycling programs, alternative energy use, and energy conservation
- Provide public education through outreach events
- Support other County environmental organizations
The Environmental Commission currently has eight members who serve three-year terms. Following the initial three-year term, voting members may be appointed to two additional full terms. Voting members must be residents of Calvert County and have interest in one or many facets of the county’s natural and man-made environments, which include forests, farms, fields and streams. The commission also considers and advises on topics including but not limited to climate change, sea-level rise, aquifers supplying drinking water, traffic congestion, stormwater and wastewater management, sustainable practices, energy and water conservation.
Meetings are held the last Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Prince Frederick Library located at 850 Costley Way in Prince Frederick. When the last Monday of the month falls on a holiday, the meeting shall be held earlier. Meetings are subject to change.
Members of the public are permitted to join and speak at EC meetings. All meetings are hybrid and the public can join via zoom:

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. It is present in many homes in Maryland, and breathing it in over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to your family. If your home hasn't been tested for radon gas in the past 2-3 years, order a test kit now! Radon test kits are available to Maryland residents from the State Departments of Health and the Environment.
