Description

The difference between a basement and a crawlspace seems clear by common perception of what each one is. But when it comes to floodplain management, the distinction, while very specific, may not be as easy for some to discern.

Whether designing a structure to be constructed in a 1% chance floodplain, completing an Elevation Certificate for insurance or Letter of Map Change purposes, or completing paperwork for processing a buyout, the differentiation is critical for achieving the basic objectives of the National Flood Insurance Program. This session is designed to clarify the distinction and underscore its significance. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the various meanings of “lowest floor.”

Objectives
