Summary This guidance answers questions about the conditions under which (1) wasteload allocations (WLAs) and (2) compliance credits may be acquired under The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Nutrient Credit Exchange Program. The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Nutrient Credit Exchange Program was established in 2005 when sections 62.1-44.19:12 through 62.1-44.19:19 were added to Chapter 3.1 of Title 62.1 of the Code of Virginia. For the first time in the water permitting program it allows for the limited acquisition of (1) total nitrogen and total phosphorus WLAs established under Subsection C of Sections 50, 60, 70, 110 and 120 of the Water Quality Management Planning (WQMP) Regulation (9 VAC 25-720), and (2) point source nitrogen and total phosphorus compliance credits as defined in the General Virginia Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (VPDES) Watershed Permit
