The increasing problem of agricultural nonpoint source pollution requires complex solutions. Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution: Watershed Management and Hydrology covers the latest techniques and methods of managing large watershed areas, with an emphasis on controlling non-point source pollution, especially from agricultural run-off.5/5(1).

Non-point sources participating in trading should undertake desirable control measures, such as agricultural best management practices, to reduce required loadings while incorporating a safety margin with relatively lower by:   Nonpoint source permits, are denominated in terms of expected loadings.

Firms must have a combination of both types at least equal to their emissions in the case of point sources or expected loadings in the case of nonpoint sources. [25] Permits are traded at a rate of within source categories. The increasing problem of agricultural nonpoint source pollution requires complex solutions.

It was found that while transaction costs were substantial, trades involving long lifetime structural nonpoint source controls could still offer cost savings to point sources.

Point–nonpoint trading can occur in one of two ways, Emissions for Inputs (E-I) trading or Emissions for Loadings trading (E-LO) (Horan et al., ).

E-I is a system whereby polluters trade changes in point source emissions for changes in fertilizer use or management by: Get this from a library. Point-nonpoint source trading for managing agricultural pollutant loadings: prospects for coastal watersheds.

[David Letson; Stephen R Crutchfield; Arun S Malik; United States. Department of Agriculture. Economic Research Service.]. Point/nonpoint source trading of pollutant re-ductions is one such policy. It would allow point sources to avoid reducing their pollutant load-ings by purchasing loadings reductions from nonpoint sources.

The policy is already in place in the Dillon Reservoir in Colorado and the Tar-Pamlico River basin in North Carolina. The.

Agricultural nonpoint source water pollution has long been recognized as an important contributor to U.S. water quality problems and the subject of an array of local, state, and federal initiatives to reduce the problem. A “pay-the-polluter” approach to getting farmers to adopt best management practices has not succeeded in improving water quality in many impaired Cited by:   The National Water Quality Assessment shows that agricultural nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is the leading source of water quality impacts on surveyed rivers and streams, the third largest source for lakes, the second largest source of impairments to wetlands, and a major contributor to contamination of surveyed estuaries and ground water.

using point-nonpoint source water quality trading (WQT) to cost effectively achieve pollution control has been enthusiastically embraced by many economists as well as some regulators. Since the mids, point-nonpoint source water quality trading has been the subject of experiments in 16 locations in the U.S.

(Environomics, ). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines point source pollution as “any single identifiable source of pollution from which pollutants are discharged, such as a pipe, ditch, ship or factory smokestack” (Hill, ). Factories and sewage treatment plants are two common types of point sources.

Abstract: This document contains the proceedings for the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists Workshop held in Lexington, Kentucky in Junewhich focused on management of nonpoint-source pollution control.

Effluent trading programs are being promoted on both environmental and economic grounds. If a limited number of legally sanctioned discharge allowances of a targeted pollutant (expressed as a unit of weight like pounds or kilograms) are distributed to waste dischargers, an effluent trading system establishes an explicit cap or limit on effluent.

In recent years, improvements in point-source depuration technologies have highlighted the problems regarding agricultural nonpoint (diffuse) sources, and this issue has become highly relevant from the environmental point of view.

A trading program would allow point sources to purchase reductions in pollutant loadings from nonpoint sources, reducing the overall cost of pollution control. An extensive literature has developed on the conditions needed for successful trading between different sources and how the characteristics of non.
