Abstract

This study tracked a watershed-based trading program in the Long Island Sound in Connecticut to help other municipalities develop and implement trading programs of their own. Nitrogen effluent credit trading offers an equitable and cost-saving approach for major point sources to meet nitrogen reduction requirements and total maximum daily load (TMDL) limits.
