Nutrient credits; generation near where used; report. Provides that any nutrient credit used to comply with certain stormwater runoff water quality criteria shall be generated in the same eight-digit hydrologic unit code (HUC), as defined by the U.S. Geological Survey, as the site of the land-disturbing activity. Current law allows such a credit to be generated in a HUC adjacent to the one in which the land-disturbing activity is located. The bill also directs the Department of Environmental Quality to report to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources Committee and the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee on the nutrient credit trading program.
