    Due to the high rate of soil erosion that occurs on areas disturbed by construction, the use of effective erosion control practices is critical to protecting the quality of Maine waters.To help contractors and those involved with shoreland zoning comply with the Miane Erosion Control Law, Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has developed this training program - and a manual - on effective erosion control techniques.

    Training topics will include:

    • why erosion control is needed 
    • laws and regulations requiring erosion control practices
    • erosion control best management practices and planning
    • pollution prevention at construction sites
    • erosion control plan design
    • and the next steps in obtaining certification.

    Completion of this training, followed by a site evaluation, qualifies a contractor to become Maine DEP certified in erosion and sediment control practices.
