Hey, Robert, I am trying to get a BFE for my property, we spoke about it before can you tell me what my BFE is?
Hi, Dewitt thanks for reaching out sorry we didn’t get a chance to connect.
My colleague Claudia told me you were looking to get the BFE for the property you have in Arvada.
If you are looking at other properties they might have slightly different levels.
Attached is the Flood Zone determination. Are you considering pursuing a LOMA or are you looking elevate the building. Anything I can help on?

Are you good at reading maps?

We never think too much about the creek that run close to our home. The babbling water sounds nice and it attacks birds and wildlife. In an instant homes can be destroyed, Families will have to start over from nothing and often times face bankruptcy ruining their financial future. Your home, can go from your refuge to your worst nightmare.
Disasters are becoming more common across our country. From 1981 to 2001 it was safe to say that fewer than 20 percent of the US counties will experience a disaster each year.
Today, that number is about 50 percent. Check out this 2018 report on climate change.
The federal government spends billions of dollars annually from our taxes, to help communities rebuild and prevent future damage.
What is Base Flood Elevation (BFE)? Base Flood
Ok so we are dealing with the government so the answer has to be obscure and not really say anything. Here is the “official” definition.
NFIP/FEMA definition Base Flood
A flood having a 1% chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year. The base flood is a national regulatory standard used by the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and all Federal agencies for the purposes of requiring the purchase of flood insurance and regulating New development.
Ok now in the Flood Nerds Terms.
The base Flood is how high the government believes the flood waters will rise in the event of excessive rainfall.
