Nutrient Credit Trading Workshops Set For January 25, February 1

Potential buyers and sellers of nutrient credits within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed are invited to a series of two workshops to learn more about the Nutrient Credit Trading Program and how it can reduce the cost of complying with federal nutrient reduction requirements.
The workshops will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m--
-- January 25 - Ramada Inn and Convention Center, State College; and
-- February 1 - Farm and Home Center, Lancaster.
The tentative agenda includes an overview of the Program by John Hines, DEP Deputy for Water Resources Management, panels to discuss agriculture, point source (wastewater treatment, developer issues) and case studies of successful trades.
The workshops are sponsored by the PA Association of Conservation Districts, the departments of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, the PA Infrastructure Investment Authority, PA Farm Bureau, PA Builders Association, PA Municipal Authorities Association, Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the PennAg Industries Association.
Questions should be directed to Brenda Shambaugh with PACD at 717-238-7223 ext. 19 or send email to: brenda-shambaugh@pacd.org.
