Re: Use of Nutrient Credit Purchases for VSMP Compliance All- As you may know, the offsite water quality compliance options listed in the VSMP Regulations include restrictions for their use in impaired watersheds. The most commonly used of these offsite options is the purchase of nutrient credits from an approved credit bank. The other less.
Access credit means the capacity to remove one pound of phosphorous per year from the stormwater runoff generated by a development. Adequate system means the stormwater management infrastructure and equipment of the city and all improvements thereto, which meet all applicable criteria set forth in the stormwater design manual that will convey the designated frequency storm event without over.
A nutrient or volume credit trading system for water within roadside ditches in Tidewater Virginia would not be feasible. Such an approach would require the expansion of the current credit trading scheme beyond a single river basin, which is not allowed under current law as it is not protective of local water quality. Further, there is currently little market for nutrient or volume credits in.

The primary motivation for establishing these buffers was to reduce nutrient loadings. On a larger scale, the federal and state governments have combined to establish the Chesapeake Bay Program to restore and protect this major estuary.
