Maryland Environmental Service Recycles Wastewater Treatment Plant         

Maryland Environmental Service (MES), a MACo Bronze Partner, recently recycled a wastewater treatment plant. They helped their client, Pearlstone Conference and Retreat Center, replace their outdated geo-reactor wastewater equipment with like-new membrane bioreactor equipment and a building from an unused plant at a Harford County Elementary School; Harford County recouped some of their investment and Pearlstone saved over half a million dollars. The new Pearlstone plant is clean, operator-friendly, odor-free and improving the environment at its new home in Reisterstown. Visit MES' facebook page to find out more.
