Description This report provides an analysis of water banking legislation, policies, and programs in 12 Western states. A primary purpose of the review is to identify banking programs and structures that promote and enhance environmental trades. The analysis examines each state individually beginning with the legislative history of the development of the banking programs. In addition, the review provides a detailed description of banking rules and level of activity.
