Stormwater Retention Credit Trading Program

You can generate and sell Stormwater Retention Credits (SRCs) to earn revenue for projects that reduce harmful stormwater runoff by installing green infrastructure (GI) or by removing impervious surfaces. Installing new, voluntary GI in the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) will generate High-Impact SRCs which provide the greatest water quality benefits to the District’s waterbodies. You can lock in an SRC sale price by selling to DOEE through the SRC Price Lock Program, and you’ll still have the option to sell your SRCs in an open market to properties that have regulatory requirements for managing stormwater.

DOEE offers many resources to help you get started on an SRC-generating project. You can generate SRCs on your property or you can start an SRC-aggregating business to generate SRC from multiple properties.
