StormStore: Cook County’s New Stormwater Credit Trading Market


"During this Zoom presentation, learn about storm water credit trading, a 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 storm water credit pilots in two Cook County watersheds. The Nature Conservancy and the Metropolitan Planning Council will manage these pilots through our StormStore partnership.

The speakers we’ll explain storm water credit trading and the Cook County pilots, as well as discuss what they're looking for in the first projects in Cook County to take advantage of storm water trading."
