Installing green infrastructure (GI) can have a range of environmental and financial benefits, including reducing your water bill, improving drainage, providing attractive landscaping and helping reduce pollution to the District’s rivers and streams. If GI meets program eligibility requirements, it may also be used to generate Stormwater Retention Credits (SRCs).
Many property owners choose to partner with an SRC-aggregating business that can install and maintain green infrastructure on your property, often at no cost to you (typically in exchange for the right to some or all of the SRCs that are generated). You can use the following resources to find a partner:
- List of SRC Aggregators – SRC aggregators can add their names to this list if they meet training requirements
- List of Interested Properties – You can add your name to this list if you want to be contacted by SRC Aggregators
If you would like to install SRC-generating GI without partnering with an aggregator, DOEE offers several resources to help with your project:
- SRC Site Evaluation – Request an evaluation of potential SRC-generating green infrastructure projects on your property (you must have at least .5 acres available and be located within the MS4).
- SRC Price Lock Program – Lock in an SRC sale price with DOEE for your green infrastructure project in the MS4.
- Financial Return Calculator – Estimate the financial return of an SRC project.
- Some properties may also be eligible for assistance in installing GI through DOEE’s RiverSmart Programs.
