eMDE’s New, Fresh Look

The Maryland Department of the Environment has announced  a new look and approach to it’s electronic newsletter: eMDE.  Instead of receiving MDE’s e-newsletter every few months, those on MDE’s mailing list will be receiving news as it happens.

MDE recently sent out information in its formal release:

We will continue to deliver this news to your email inbox. The new approach will also allow us to take advantage of the MDE website’s Newsroom page, which has been refurbished with a bright look and user-friendly navigation features.

In Maryland, we face a number of critical environmental challenges. Protecting and restoring our streams and rivers and the Chesapeake Bay, working to ensure an abundant supply of safe drinking water, keeping youngsters safe from the dangers of lead paint poisoning, maintaining our momentum in cleaning the air we all breathe and reducing the risks posed by climate change – these are just some of the issues that the men and women of the Maryland Department of the Environment are committed to addressing. Keeping Marylanders informed on these matters is a big part of our mission. The new-look eMDE is one of the ways we will do just that.

And what better time than Earth Week to launch this new project? We hope that the many events that take place this week achieve the goal of raising everyone’s awareness of environmental issues – and the ways that all of us can make a real difference.

MDE encourages readers to send thoughts and suggestions for the new eMDE to editor.mde@maryland.gov.
