Webcast: Washington DC’s Stormwater Retention Credit Program
May 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

This webinar will provide a deep dive into DC’s Department of Energy and 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.

Presenter: Brian Van Wye, DC Department of Energy and Environment

Great Lakes & St. Lawrence Green Infrastructure Conference
May 31 – Jun 2 all-day

As local governments struggle to address aging infrastructure and capacity issues, opportunities exist to transition away from grey to green infrastructure. Communities across the Great Lakes basin are pushing their integrated stormwater management to the next level and using green infrastructure to minimize flooding risks by decreasing surface runoff into lakes and streams.

The Great Lakes & St. Lawrence Green Infrastructure Conference is the first conference to focus on using green infrastructure across the landscape with a primary goal of protecting the surface waters in the Great Lakes region. The time is right for a comprehensive look at this important topic of taking stormwater management into the 21st century. The conference location in Detroit is in the middle of the Great Lakes chain and at the forefront of many innovative green infrastructure projects.

This conference is intended for engineers, landscape architects, water quality professionals, government officials (local, state, provincial, and federal), developers, planners, academia, drain and road agencies, conservation and non-profit organizations, and interest groups from the Great Lakes basin in Canada and the U.S., who are working on integrated stormwater management and green infrastructure.
