This document presents fundamental principles and guidelines for nutrient trading in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The Chesapeake Bay Program convened the Nutrient Trading Negotiation Team (Negotiation Team) in June 1999 for the purpose of exploring the feasibility of nutrient trading for point and nonpoint sources in the Chesapeake Bay watershed and, if appropriate, develop nutrient trading guidelines for the Bay jurisdictions to use on a voluntary basis. The outcomes of the Negotiation Team's deliberations are presented herein. This document is not a regulation. Rather, it is intended to be used on a voluntary basis as a guide for those jurisdictions that choose to establish nutrient trading programs. The Negotiation Team was composed of a wide array of interested stakeholders from across the Chesapeake Bay watershed-Federal, state, and local governments, as well as municipal, industrial, agricultural, environmental, and public interests, were among those represented.
