The Federal Emergency Management Agency has updated their Elevation Certificate.


Doug Wagner, senior water planner for Indiana's Department of Natural Resources, wrote in the most recent issue of the Hoosier Surveyor that the six-page document is used for a host of reasons from floodplain administrators who need to comply with local ordinances to insurance agents rating a structure for flood insurance.


The most recent Elevation Certificate expired Nov. 30, 2018, but FEMA had told users to continue utilizing it anyway until the new form and instructions were published. DNR was notified Tuesday that the new form is now available on FEMA's website.

Wagner says there are no changes to the form other than the expiration date, which is now Nov. 30, 2022. Still, surveyors should be sure to use this new version with the updated expiration date instead of using copies of the old form.
