Regulations & Documents
In January 13, 2003, Administrator Christine Todd Whitman announced the issuance of the final water quality trading policy by stating that, "the most effective and economical way to reduce pollution is to provide incentives to encourage action by those who can achieve reductions easily and cost-effectively.” The policy supports the trading of nutrients and sediments within a watershed. Additionally, the US EPA is providing $800,000 to support 11 projects around the country.
