Stormwater credit trading is an innovative, market-based approach that enables infrastructure that reduces flooding to be built efficiently where it’s needed most. The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago recently authorized stormwater credit pilots in two Cook County watersheds. The Nature Conservancy and the Metropolitan Planning Council will manage these pilots through our StormStore partnership.

Join us for a July 9 webinar where we’ll explain stormwater credit trading and the Cook County pilots, as well as discuss what we’re looking for in the first projects in Cook County to take advantage of stormwater trading.
