Methodology Idea Note
The proposed new methodology applies to project activities that reduce point and nonpoint source contamination of watersheds, thereby reducing GHG emissions from electricity use, consumables, and infrastructure construction associated with downstream drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater management and treatment. The proposed methodology applies to a broad range of technologies, processes, and geographies.
SUMMARY OF DEVELOPMENT
