Overview of Webinar
The District of Columbia’s Stormwater Retention Credit (SRC) program helps to fund green infrastructure (GI) projects, driving private investment to the most vulnerable watersheds in Washington, DC. This first-of-its-kind market for stormwater runoff is built into the District’s regulations for major development projects, which allows developers to comply with stormwater management requirements off-site. Through the SRC Price Lock Program, and other incentives, the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) helps to encourage voluntarily-constructed GI projects, which produce SRCs.
This webinar will cover:
  • Objectives and structure of the SRC Program
  • Program History
  • Update on the program status.
