ON MONDAY, Kendl P. Philbrick becomes the chief steward of Maryland's air, water, open spaces and the Chesapeake Bay. He has much to prove. A businessman with no experience as a governmental regulator, his title will be acting secretary of the Department of Environment, the agency charged with protecting the state's most precious resources. The General Assembly's chief environmental expert, Sen. Brian E. Frosh of Montgomery County, says Mr. Philbrick is less qualified to police the environment than Lynn Y. Buhl, who was rejected in a bitter fight during the last legislative session.

AIR POLLUTION from cars and smokestacks gives Maryland too many Code Red air quality days. Toxic mercury from various sources still finds its way into state waterways. Runoff from farms and development contributes to the growth of "dead zones" in the Chesapeake Bay. As always, the environment faces a long list of dire threats. That's why Maryland needs an aggressive, knowledgeable and experienced hand at the helm of the state's Department of the Environment. As it happens, the man in charge, Kendl P. Philbrick, has yet to prove that he qualifies in any of these areas.

Kendl P. Philbrick, who a year ago was being portrayed as a "nightmare" for conservationists, won the unanimous approval of a Senate committee last night for confirmation as Maryland's secretary of the environment. The Senate Executive Nominations Committee recommended Philbrick's confirmation after he assured the panel he would reserve a "seat at the table" for environmental groups that felt the wrath of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. last year after they successfully opposed the previous nominee.

Former corporate real estate executive Kendl P. Philbrick will become acting secretary of the Maryland Department of the Environment on Monday, a promotion that has some environmental advocates worried that the regulatory agency may tilt toward business interests. Philbrick will replace acting secretary Lynn Y. Buhl, the polarizing figure from Michigan whose rejection by the Maryland Senate this year delivered Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. one of his most visible setbacks. Buhl, a former Chrysler Corp.

State Environmental Secretary Kendl P. Philbrick has mailed a four-page letter to residents of the Fallston area of Harford County stressing that the agency is continuing its investigation of the groundwater contamination that has troubled the area off and on since 1991. The letter was mailed Thursday - two days after residents sent their own letters to U.S. Sens. Paul S. Sarbanes and Barbara A. Mikulski urging them to pressure the state for swifter investigation of the water contamination.

Maryland's top environmental official pledged yesterday to impose stiff penalties on ExxonMobil Corp. and to tighten regulatory controls on service stations throughout the state in the wake of a 25,000-gallon gasoline leak in the Jacksonville area of Baltimore County. At a news conference across from the Exxon station where the leak occurred, Kendl P. Philbrick, secretary of the state Department of the Environment, called the Jacksonville leak "catastrophic" and announced that he is ordering immediate checks of leak detection systems by all 3,500 regulated fuel tank owners in the state, to be followed by new emergency regulations that would enhance efforts to catch leaks quickly.

As pollution controls go, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative is about as mild as a winter vacation on the Gulf of Mexico. The RGGI calls on the seven participating Northeastern states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 10 percent by 2019. That's reasonable. Plus, the law offers a great deal of industry-friendly flexibility, allowing plant owners to trade allowances and invest in offsetting projects. The RGGI could prove a model program for the nation, and its timing couldn't be better.

As lawmakers approached a critical vote on a bill designed to reduce the state's chronic air pollution, Maryland environmental Secretary Kendl P. Philbrick faxed a letter to a powerful state senator arguing against the legislation. The Maryland Department of the Environment opposed going beyond federal regulations, Philbrick's letter said, because tougher state standards would "lead to significantly higher costs" for local power plants. But the words in the March 23 letter to the Senate Finance Committee chairman, Thomas M. Middleton, were not written by Philbrick, state documents show.

It could be a peace overture, or just another miscue. The day after the Senate rejected Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s choice for environment secretary, his similarly controversial pick for the agency's No. 2 spot made a rare appearance yesterday before a House committee - where he received a polite, if strained, hearing on a bill to increase pollution penalties. "I'm Ken Philbrick - I think you've probably heard that name in the past couple days," said the deputy secretary of the environment as he introduced himself to the House Environmental Matters Committee.
