Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Credit Trading Program; Notice of Registration

[40 Pa.B. 5642]
[Saturday, October 2, 2010]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) provides notice of the following credit registration recorded under the Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Credit Trading Program (Trading Program). The request for registration was submitted under The Clean Streams Law (35 P. S. §§ 691.1—691.1001) and the Final Trading of Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Credits—Policy and Guidelines (Policy) (DEP ID# 392-0900-001) (see 36 Pa.B. 7999 (December 30, 2006)).

 Trading is a market-based program that provides incentives for entities to create nutrient reduction credits by going beyond statutory, regulatory or voluntary obligations and goals by removing nutrients from a watershed. The credits can be traded to help others more cost-effectively meet their obligations or goals. The primary purpose of the Trading Program is to provide for more efficient ways for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permittees to meet their effluent limits for nutrients and sediment. Currently, the focus of the program is on the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

 This notice relates to the registration of credits through September 17, 2010. For background information related these credits, see the Department's certification published at 38 Pa.B. 1887 (April 19, 2008).
