Under the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation’s Stormwater Permit, all construction site contractors and subcontractors must have at least one “trained individual” from their company on their construction sites on a daily basis that is responsible for implementation of Erosion Controls and Stormwater Management.   These individuals must complete this 4-hour training every three years to remain certified on the principles and practices of erosion and sediment control and stormwater management. This training covers both technical and regulatory aspects of stormwater management and erosion control, and is open to anyone including municipal officials, developers, contractors, non-profit organizations, and others.

The course is $75, and includes a certificate, materials, coffee, snacks.  Municipal officials will earn 4 PDE hours by NYSDOS.  Contact Megan Myers of the Rensselaer County Soil & Water Conservation District for registration at (518) 271-1740 ext. 3, or by e-mail at Megan.Myers.RenscoSWCD@gmail.com.  You can download a flyer and registration form at https://www.renscosoilandstormwater.org/public-trainings.
