Nonpoint nutrient offsets.  Establishes priorities to be used by permit issuing authorities when considering off-site options for nonpoint nutrient offsets. The first priority of the four priority options will be nonpoint nutrient offsets generated by private entities. The bill also provides the three conditions under which an off-site option can be granted. Permit-issuing authorities are to allow the full or partial substitution of nonpoint nutrient offsets for existing on-site nutrient control when the offsets will compensate for 10 or fewer pounds of the annual phosphorous requirement associated with the land-disturbing activity or the existing on-site controls are not functioning as anticipated and the use of the offset will make up the deficiency. The bill requires the acquisition of nonpoint nutrient offsets in compliance actions to compensate for nutrient control deficiencies when nutrient control deficiencies occur during the period of noncompliance and for permanent deficiencies. Amends § 10.1-603.8:1, of the Code of Virginia.
