Regulatory Incentives

Our familiarity with stormwater ordinances provides our clients with an expert analysis of the benefits of potential sustainable initiatives.

Recently, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) published its Green Initiatives, explaining how to incorporate best management practices in the projects they review and permit.


Various ordinances at the county and municipal level also consider sustainable initiatives when reviewing permit applications. Often, benefits of these practices come in the form of reduced runoff coefficients and/or reduced impervious area, which commonly result in reduced detention/runoff volume requirements. Thoughtful design takes advantage of these regulatory incentives.
