The Nonpoint Source Training and Resource Center’s Fall 2017 training schedule includes sessions to provide training to contractors, municipal officials, consultants and others. For individuals who are looking to obtain DEP certification in erosion control practices, programs in basic and advanced erosion and sediment control practices will be offered at Strong and Lewiston.

Most municipalities are requiring contractors working in the shoreland zone to be certified if they are involved with soil disturbance activity, making certification a prerequisite for those doing excavation work.

The basic and advanced erosion control practices session is offered at:

• Strong Town Office, Friday, Oct. 20. To register, contact Rosetta Thompson at 207-778-4279;

• Lewiston, at Kaplan University, Wednesday, Oct. 25. To register, contact Jocelyn Lahey at 207-241-5374.

Registration fees may apply for either session; varies with sponsor.
