phosphates_2017_530_115

Across North America, water quality trading programs have emerged as market mechanisms for controlling nutrient pollution of waterways. Such programs establish markets in which those generating water pollutants may purchase credits from those enacting certain pollution mitigation measures as a more cost-effective means of complying with legal obligations for pollution control. Panelists Victoria Pebbles, Program Director of the Great Lakes Commission, and Doug Myers, Senior Scientist at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, will join us for a discussion of what water quality trading programs are, how they operate, their promise for mitigating phosphorus pollution of our waterways, and common obstacles to their implementation and success. Register now!
