A recent state survey conducted over the course of four months in more than 100 sites from San Francisco Bay to the Delta, has revealed a 99 percent decline in the surveyed population.

- Louisiana to Implement Pollution Credit Trading System (1/30/2018) - Following a national trend to improve water quality, Louisiana has approved a measure to implement a pollution credit-trading program. Once finalized, the program will allow factories, farms, and sewer plants to offset its pollution by purchasing credits from another entity that has achieved their targeted pollutant reduction. Known as “water quality credit trading”, the program has become popular with states seeking an incentive-based approach to tackling water pollution. States such as North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Ohio have utilized the program for years, with good results. In an interview with The Times-Picayune (NOLA), Amanda Vincent, water permits manager for the Louisiana [...]
