Chapter 102 Training for the Regulated Community 

The Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. (PACD) is partnering with the Southcentral Region of the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to offer a one-day training session for planners, engineers and others working with the state's Chapter 102: Erosion & Sediment Control regulations.

This session will kick off a series of semi-annual training sessions on permitting and permit applications for Chapter 102: Erosion and Sediment Control and Chapter 105: Dam Safety and Waterway Management. The series will focus on designing and permitting of activities which are reviewed by the Waterways & Wetlands Program in the Southcentral DEP Region, which serves Adams, Bedford, Berks, Blair, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Mifflin, Perry and York Counties.

The training will take place Thursday, November 13 and will expand on the following topics:

  • PNDI search
  • Looking at soils (including initial soil testing)
  • Impaired streams
  • How to avoid and minimize 105 impacts
  • Designated and existing buffers
  • Oil and Gas
  • Timber Harvesting
  • Permit Application Process
  • PCSM Planning & Design
  • Municipal versus DEP (reviews & Act 167)

All materials, as well as a light breakfast and lunch, will be provided for all registrants. There is a $150 fee per registrant. Space is limited and registration is on a first come, first served basis.
