Description

Nutrient credits; use by facility with certain stormwater discharge permit. Authorizes a facility that has been issued a Virginia Pollution Discharge Elimination System (VPDES) permit regulating stormwater discharges to acquire, use, and transfer nutrient credits for compliance with any waste load allocation established as an effluent limitation in its VPDES permit so long as the credits meet several requirements. Current law allows only a facility registered under the Industrial Stormwater General Permit to use nutrient credits for such purpose. Read the Bill »
