US EPA & WEF WEBINAR: Washington DC’s Stormwater Retention Credit ProgramTraining Type(s): Education, Webinar
Date / Time: May 23, 2017 12:00 pm

This webinar will provide a deep dive into DC’s Department of Energy & Environment Stormwater Retention Credit (SRC) Program. The SRC program, established on July 19, 2013, is the first of its kind in the nation. The program creates a market for voluntary stormwater retrofits in Washington DC. The program allows regulated sites to meet their obligations by buying SRCs from unregulated properties elsewhere in the city. Other District properties generate SRCs by exceeding their own regulatory requirements or voluntarily installing retention infrastructure such as green roofs and rain gardens. The SRC market provides flexible and cost-effective compliance options for the regulated community as well as financial incentives to voluntarily increase stormwater retention in the District.
