ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Elevation: Mitigation to Reduce Future Flood Risk   [open pdf - 36KB]

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has published Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) maps to show the elevations structures should be constructed to in order to minimize or eliminate future flood damage. These maps identify new flood zones for portions of communities which may impact flood insurance rates and building criteria. Communities are encouraged to adopt ABFE maps to reduce future flood risk and lower flood insurance premiums."
