National Network Releases the New Water Quality Trading Guide

Since 2013, the Network’s dialogue has focused on identifying common trading issues and the options, considerations, and examples important to building a trading program. That dialogue is captured in the guide, Building a Water Quality Trading Program: Options and Considerations, released on June 17, 2015.

Building a Water Quality Trading Program walks through 11 key elements many trading programs consider in their design, with examples, options, and clear pros and cons for program design to help stakeholders build a program that meets local needs. For each of these elements, there is no “one size fits all solution.” Instead, the guide outlines considerations that make different options more or less viable under different conditions.

Water quality trading programs are still evolving and must adapt to ever-changing circumstances and requirements, so this is a “living” document, seeking additions and updates as trading programs generate new lessons.
