Description An informational 2 page document explaining how water quality trading works and Ecology’s recommendations for how we could establish a nutrient credit trading program for wastewater treatment plants covered under the Puget Sound Nutrient General Permit. Recommendations are based on information detailed in a report Ecology submitted to the Washington State Legislature in June 2023.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
