Feasibility of point-nonpoint source trading for managing agricultural pollutant loadings to coastal waters. Crutchfield, S. R.; Letson, D.; Malik, A. S. Water-resour-res v.30, p.2825-2836. (1994). Includes references. Descriptors: pollutants-; agriculture-; water-pollution; point-sources; pollution-control; water-quality; watersheds-; coastal-areas; feasibility-; usa-; nonpoint-source-pollution; point-source-pollution Abstract: A recent focus of water quality policy discussions has been the trading of pollution abatement between point and nonpoint sources. Point-nonpoint trading would allow point sources to sponsor nonpoint source controls rather than install further controls of their own. If nonpoint source loadings are significant and the marginal costs of their control are lower than for additional point source controls, water quality goals could be met at lower cost with trading. We isolate difficulties particular to incentive policies such as point-nonpoint trading and then screen coastal watersheds for those satisfying conditions that play a major role in determining whether trading can improve water quality. We follow the recent Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments in emphasizing agriculture, the single largest cause of nonpoint source pollution. Our screening analysis provides an initial, empirical assessment of the feasibility of trading for managing agricultural land use to protect coastal water quality. We also illustrate the additional analysis required to quantify the potential for successful trading in those watersheds which meet our screening criteria.

Descriptors: mussels-; vibrio-; food-contamination; food-poisoning; virulence-; water-quality; tropics-; sao-paulo Abstract: Mussels (Perna perna) harvested on the coast of Ubatuba, in three different stations in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil, were examined for Vibrio spp. over a 1 year period. The ranges of most probable number (MPN 100 g-1) were: Vibrio alginolyticus (< 3-24000), V. parahaemolyticus (< 3-24000), V. fluvialis (< 3-1100), Y. cholerae non- O1 (< 3-23), V. furnissii (< 3-30), V. mimicus (< 3-9) and V. vulnificus (< 3-3). The highest incidence was observed for V. alginolyticus (92-100%), followed by V. parahaemolyticus (67-92%), V. fluvialis (34-67%), V. vulnificus (8-17%), V. furnissii (0-17%), V. mimicus (0-17%) and V. cholerae non-O1 (0-8%). Tests for virulence factors were positive in 34.1% of the vibrios in the rabbit ileal loop and 31.7% in the Dean test. Positive results in the Kanagawa test were obtained with 0.51% of V. parahaemolyticus strains. The mean values (MPN 100 g-1) of faecal coliforms in mussels from the three regions varied from 1100 to 4400, and seawater collected at the same stations gave average values for faecal coliforms in the range 18-3300 MPN 100 ml-1 These results highlight the potential risks of food poisoning associated with raw or undercooked seafood.

Descriptors: maize-; agricultural-chemicals; pollution-control; technical- progress; environmental-policy; low-input-agriculture; innovation- adoption; elasticities-; mathematical-models; usa- Abstract: In this paper we consider the market-level impacts of factor- augmenting innovations designed to reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides, first within the context of a simple two-factor model, and then through a simulation model of the U.S.corn market. In both models, the impacts depend on the output demand elasticity and input substitution elasticities. The principal conclusion of the simulation analysis is that the potential for new techniques to reduce the use of agricultural chemicals is limited. Capital-augmenting innovations would actually raise fertilizer and pesticide usage. Land-augmenting innovations would also tend to increase pesticide usage.
