Rescission of Technical Guidance

DEP ID: 392-0900-001. Title: Final Trading of Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Credits—Policy and Guidelines. Description: Published as final at 36 Pa.B. 7999 (December 30, 2006), the contents of this document describe the requirements for the voluntary generation and trading of nutrient and sediment reduction credits to meet water quality requirements under then applicable laws and regulations. These guidelines were replaced by 25 Pa. Code § 96.8 (relating to use of offsets and tradable credits from pollution reduction activities in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed), which were finalized in 2010. This document is being rescinded, as it conflicts with the regulation.
