Natural Resource Students Complete NYS DEC: Storm Water & Erosion Control Certification

Thirteen second year Natural Resources students completed the NYS DEC Storm Water & Erosion Control Certification class on 3/22/17 at the Sullivan County Soil & Water Conservation District.

Students learned NYS standards as well as storm water techniques on construction projects. New York State DEC requires that any project that will impact, disturb or expose one or more acres of soil must possess a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan and a person with the training must be on site for the duration of the job. This certification makes student very appealing to construction companies for employment.
