Source sectors, such as agriculture, wastewater treatment, and stormwater, will need to implement best management practices and stormwater control measures to achieve nitrogen and sediment TMDLs for the Chesapeake Bay. Bay jurisdictions are considering changes to their water quality trading programs that lower costs of TMDL implementation. The greatest cost benefits could come from using agricultural BMPs to generate credits for sale to Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems. WRI explores the regulatory framework supporting such transactions in two Bay jurisdictions. The assessment identifies important recommendations for next steps.
