  • Virginia
  • Gloucester County
  • York Watershed

The goal of this 50.10 acre Nutrient Bank located in Gloucester County, Virginia is to reduce nutrient (phosphorus) and sediment loading into the York Watershed via the conversion of active agricultural land into forest; and generate nonpoint nutrient credits for transfer under existing and future federal, state and local law, programs, regulations and guidance. The site primarily consists of crop production. The land use conversion will generate 447.13 pounds of nitrogen reduction and 42.92 pounds of phosphorus reduction.
