The recertification class is for members that had their erosion control certification that expires on December 31, 2018.  You are still invited to attend the class, but you won’t obtain the recertification, if your certification expired prior to December 31, 2018.  You can also take the class if your certification hasn’t expired and extend it by three years.

For information on the erosion control requirements go to:

If you or your employees need to take the original class you can find class info at:
If you have any other questions on the erosion control please email William Longfellow at or call him at 207-287-2821.

I made an error in the newsletter.  We did the Erosion Control Class on February 28, 2012 at The Best Western Plus in Waterville, six years ago, not eight and we the recertification class at E. J. Prescott, Inc. in Gardiner, three years ago, not four.  Sorry for the confusion.
