Description

Nutrient and sediment credit generation and transfer; limit certain transfers to private sector. Limits certain transfers of nonpoint nutrient credits to those credits generated by the private sector. The bill provides that while any locality may, without the involvement of a third party, generate its own nutrient or sediment credits and request that such credits be certified by the Department of Environmental Quality, such certifications shall only be used for the purpose of determining whether the project complies with certain credit generation requirements. The bill authorizes any publicly owned water treatment works that is constructing or expanding a treatment facility to permanently retire a portion of its wasteload allocation under certain circumstances. This bill is identical to SB 747. Read the Bill »
