Determining where certain land use and natural resource regulations apply and what standards need to be followed can be a complicated topic for many contractors, landowners, and government officials alike. This class will explore the individual regulations that those working or disturbing soil in Maine may encounter including local Shoreland Zoning Ordinances, state natural resource protection laws, stormwater regulations, federal rules and regulations, and the ways that they interact.

The program will cover Maine's Shoreland Zoning Law, Erosion and Sedimentation Control Law, the Natural Resources Protection Act, as well as regulations administered by the Army Corps of Engineers. The program will also include discussion of jurisdiction and permit requirements for each entity, ways these regulations overlap, identifying natural resources, and most importantly, it will provide attendees with contacts and resources for technical, permitting, and other assistance.

This class qualifies for 4 hours of Continuing Education Credit for individuals Certified in Erosion Control Practices by Maine DEP.
