Elevation Certificate is an essential tool that documents and confirms your property’s elevation relative to the estimated height floodwaters will reach in the event of a major flood in a high-risk area.
The Elevation Certificate is an important administrative tool of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It is to be used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, and to support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Letter of Map
Revision based on fill (LOMR-F).
If your property falls under a flood zone, then it is required by the City to provide an Elevation Certificate, prior to implementing any construction plans on the property.
We at FIF ENGINEERING LLC can help you prepare the Elevation Certificate for your property.
