Are you getting more questions about determining BFEs at a site, even in approximate A Zones? Do you work with flood
development permits or FEMA Elevation Certificates (ECs)? Do you need a BFE for an approximate A zone but are unsure where to start? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, this webinar is for you.
Recent NFIP reforms make determining precise flood risk more important than ever in response to rising flood insurance costs. Identifying a BFE with confidence helps to determine actuarial flood insurance rates and plan for possible flood mitigation actions. In some cases the BFE is already available, in others it must be calculated.
Presenter: Brian Varrella, PE, CFM, has helped professionals and property owners identify BFEs in 19 states across the nation. Brian's approach uses all available resources to determine BFEs to prepare local permits and complete ECs in riverine Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs). Determining BFEs is not an impossible task, and the demand for more detailed information is increasing!
In this webinar you will learn how to:
Identify and use free resources to determine riverine BFEs
Explain the simplified and detailed methods for determining BFEs
Determine how and when to apply different methods in approximate A Zone SFHAs.
All registered attendees will receive access to a recording of the webinar, copies of the slides, and links to various free resources available for anyone working with BFEs.
1 CEC for CFMs who participate in the entire live webinar.
