Protecting New York’s Natural Resources with Better Construction Site Management

NYS DEC Mandatory 4 Hour Erosion & Sediment Control Training For Contractors, Developers, Inspectors, and any individuals involved in soil disturbance activities.

Putnam County Soil & Water Conservation District and Dutchess County Soil & Water Conservation District periodically offers a mandatory training program in soil erosion and sediment control for contractors at the Putnam County Training & Operations Building in Carmel.

The training sessions are being offered in the wake of new statewide regulations for contractors on projects with a cumulative land disturbance of one acre or more.  The regulations, which went into effect May 1, 2010, require that contractors receive a minimum of four hours training in soil erosion and sediment control every three years when performing work classified as “land disturbing.”

Registration information is available at  845-878-7918  or online at  There is a fee and advanced registration is required.  Seats are limited, so early registration is advised.

The latest meeting can be found as streaming video on the Channel 18 & 20 section of this website.  Any special documents for the meetings will be posted on the Agendas & Public Notices page if available.
