All major environmental programs in Mary-
land have been reorganized pursuant to the Gov-
ernor's Executive Order 01.01.1980.04, approved
by the 1980 session of the General Assembly,
into the Department of Health and Mental Hy-
giene under the Assistant Secretariat for Environ-
mental Programs. The mission of the Assistant
Secretariat is to foster and protect the public
health and well-being by providing an environ-
ment free of the uncontrolled release or disposal
of toxic, hazardous, or undesirable substances or
emissions, and by affording the consumer safe
and wholesome food, drugs, and other consum-
able products. In order to pursue these goals, the
Assistant Secretariat has been tentatively orga-
nized into three support units and four major
programs. The three support units are: Adminis-
trative Services, Planning and Analysis, and Sci-
ence and Health Advisory. The program organi-
zations are as follows:

The Air Quality Control Program develops air
resources management plans and program strate-
gies. It develops and enforces regulations for con-
trol of emissions from stationary and other
sources. It also maintains a comprehensive state-
wide air monitoring system to provide current
knowledge of ambient pollutant levels in order to
institute regular and emergency procedures for
their control.

The Community Health Protection Program
assures safe and wholesome products and pro-
tects the public health through regulation of the
manufacture, distribution, and sale of milk, food,
and other consumer products, and regulates con-
trolled dangerous substances or drugs with an
abuse potential. It also regulates the control of
dangerous emissions through ionizing and non-
ionizing radiation sources and protects the public
from dangerous levels of noise pollution through
regulation and inspection.
