Presented by the ISBA Environmental Law Section

Discover a new approach to addressing the ongoing problem of
nutrient pollution in Illinois’ waterways with this online seminar!


Don’t miss this comprehensive look at how a market-based approach to solving water quality problems may lead to cleaner water in a shorter timeframe and with less financial burden than traditional approaches. Environmental lawyers, administrative practitioners, and local government attorneys with all levels of practice experience who attend this seminar will better understand:

  • What a market-based approach entails;
  • How the trade of pollution reductions between different entities could be the answer to lowering nitrogen and phosphorus levels in our water;
  • The potential challenges with this new approach (including local hot spots and market illiquidity); and
  • How a properly designed market could address each of these challenges.
