Maine Land Use Regulations: Shoreland Zoning, Maine’s Natural Resources Protection Act, Army Corps of Engineers

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. Anyone interested in encouraged to attend and may also be of interest to Code Enforcement Officers, inspectors, municipal officials, homeowners, and contractors.

AFTERNOON WORKSHOP ONLY ($15) 12:30pm - 4:30pm

Stream Crossing Design and Installation

Maine has approximately 45,000 miles of rivers and streams, many of which intersect with the 30,000 miles of roads throughout the state. The design and proper installation of stream crossings is important to the continued resiliency of our road network and reducing flooding impacts, but also is extremely important to the ability of our fish and wildlife to access the habitat needed to sustain their populations for generations to come.

During this 4-hour introductory course, participants will be exposed to aspects of stream crossing design such as structure selection and sizing, requirements for aquatic organism passage, state and federal regulations related to new and replacement stream crossings, as well as tools and techniques for the installation of crossings that minimize the impact of construction activities on the stream to maintain water quality.

This class qualifies for 4 hours of Continuing Education Credit for individuals Certified in Erosion Control Practices by Maine DEP. Anyone interested in encouraged to attend and may also be of interest to Code Enforcement Officers, inspectors, municipal officials, homeowners, and contractors.
