Credit Trading

The District received $300,000 in funding from the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) to implement a Pilot Credit Trading System for Storm Water in the Shell Rock River Watershed District to Improve Water Quality. Credit trading is a flexible, cost effective compliance plan that can accelerate implementation and water quality improvements.
The program established a transferable approach that could be used across Minnesota for sediment and nutrient credit trading for stormwater.
Below are the outcomes of the LCCMR funded Stormwater Credit Trading Pilot Project.
