The idea to promote land around sewage facility sis nice in itself. However, it is too raw and it is unclear why it should work. Locking the value of land around it will just make it completely unsellable and unusable and will have the opposite effect. It is unclear from the proposal how the pollution should reach 0%.

I tried to make my argument a bit clearer. I'm trying to identify what economic impacts these polluters are having on the surrounding environment and allowing the polluters to collect all of the value from a reduction of economic impacts. In economics terms, I'm converting externalities into internalities. It's very similar to cap and trade, but instead of an artificial value on pollution, noxious pollution has an actual economic impact, which can be captured. I propose one method which is very likely to succeed because it is a win/win situation which can be enacted at a local level in a few small areas, which can hopefully start a chain reaction which spreads globally.
