The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) coordinates the federal government’s role in preparing for, responding to, recovering from, and preventing all domestic disasters.  We refer to maps and data provided by FEMA on a daily basis when mapping to determine if a property is in a floodplain. If the property does indeed lie within an area affected by a floodplain then certain measures must be taken if there is to be any construction on the property in the future.

Kee Mapping has several Certified Flooplain Surveyors (CFS) on staff. These employees are highly knowledgeable in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), FIRM Maps, and regulations that come in to play when dealing with floodplains. Our staff can guide our clients through what needs to be done in order to construct and provide them with reliable information.

Elevation Certificates

These certificates document certain elevations of structures as they relate to FEMA base flood information and states the flood zone status of the property.  This is an important tool required by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and is used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with the community floodplain Management ordinances and to determine the proper insurance premium rate.

Letter of Map of Amendments (LOMA) 

This document is submitted to FEMA to determine if a structure or parcel of land is located within a Special Flood Hazard Area. A LOMA is usually issued because a property has been inadvertently mapped as being in the floodplain, but is actually above the base flood elevation and therefore, located outside of the floodplain.Learn More ⇒

Floodplain Stakeout

When performing any kind of construction project on a property where you may cause any sort of disturbance close to an area designated as a floodplain you might want to consider having that floodplain staked out. We use information provided by FEMA and accurately locate these areas in the field and mark them clearly for the construction crews.

FEMA Cross-Sections

A cross section is a graphical depiction of the stream and the floodplain at a particular point along the stream.  We have supplied hundreds of these cross-sections to engineers and designers for them to use for studies and determine the changes in the stream and floodplain over time, these also aid them in any reconstruction projects.
