Lessons Learned on Nutrient Credit Trading at #MACoCon

Nutrient credit trading is coming and will provide counties with a useful but complicated tool to help them meet their water quality goals. Hear from Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) representatives on lessons learned from several county pilot programs at the 2016 MACo Winter Conference.

Special Session: CBF – County Nutrient Trading Pilot Program


The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and the World Resources Institute have been working with Montgomery and Queen Anne’s Counties in Maryland and Arlington County in Virginia to facilitate nutrient credit trading and help those counties meet their water pollution reduction targets. As Maryland finalizes its own nutrient credit trading policy for both point and non-point sources, hear about the lessons learned from these pilot program efforts.
