SB 627 Nutrient reduction credits; nonpoint nutrient offsets to be credited against a nutrient allocation.

SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)

Nutrient reduction credits.  Clarifies who receives credit for the nutrient reductions associated with a stormwater nonpoint nutrient offset. Offsets are used to achieve compliance with construction site stormwater nutrient discharge requirements. The nonpoint nutrient offsets system works very similar to wetland banks. These offsets are only available when capturing all nutrients is too difficult on a development site. If the land disturbing activity using a nonpoint nutrient offset discharges to an MS4, the locality receives credit toward its nutrient allocation. If the discharge is not to a MS4 then the reductions are applied toward compliance with the nutrient allocation applicable to that area.
