– Are you ready to comply with legislation regulating soil disturbance work within 250 feet of waterbodies that, as of July 1, 2013, requires having an individual certified in DEP-Erosion and Sedimentation Control supervising the work?

If you aren’t certified, the Maine Nonpoint Source Training and Resource Center urges you to attend a Basic and Advanced training session in Erosion and Sediment Control Practices this year. This legislation took effect on July 1, 2013 and requires any contractor disturbing more than one cubic yard of soil in the shoreland zone to have the work supervised by an individual certified by DEP in Erosion Control Practices. The benefits provided by the program are discounts on erosion control products, accelerated permitting and free advertising. So take advantage of the workshops offered and plan to attend a session in the spring of 2019. For your convenience, a session will be held in Ellsworth at Ellsworth City Hall in the Auditorium on Wednesday May 1, 2019. The program will run from 8:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M., and will include morning refreshments and a manual that is yours to keep. By attending a basic and advanced session you qualify to become Certified by the DEP in Erosion and Sediment Control Practices. You will also learn about new state of the art erosion control techniques as well as ways to save time and money on your construction projects.
