WALPOLE, N.H. – The Cheshire County Conservation District (CCCD) will host an Erosion Control Field Day training on Wednesday, August 23 from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. in an effort to promote a better understanding of the latest tools available to all who are entrusted with protecting our precious soil and water resources. The training will be held at Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Rd. in Keene, and is geared toward professionals working in soils, erosion control, water quality, public works, engineering, roads, planning, and consulting, though all those interested in learning more are encouraged to attend!
Sediment is the world’s number one pollutant. Soil moved by erosion can be harmful to our drinking water resources, our fish and wildlife, and can impact our quality of life. We all need to know our options for both controlling sediment and for designing and installing more effective long-term erosion control solutions. This daylong training will start with classroom sessions and then move outdoors to small group sessions in a hands-on demonstration setting and touch on a range of topics. Those in attendance will receive Continuing Education Approvals in the form of (6.0) NH DES Subsurface Credits and (6.0 hours) Professional Development Hours.
Registration is required no later than August 15 – there is a fee to attend. Checks should be made payable to the Cheshire County Conservation District and mailed to 11 Industrial Park Dr. Walpole, NH 03608. Coffee and pastries will be provided for the morning sessions as well as a buffet lunch for all participants.
