A Flood of Letters

If you live in Chesterfield County, Virginia you may have received one of thousands of letters from the County regarding “special flood hazard areas” and the new FEMA maps.  The letter may have frightened or concerned you as it deals with the potential need for you to purchase flood insurance.  The County has made it very easy for you to look at the 100 year flood plain as it relates to your property and County staff is available to answer your questions.  In the event that you need further advise or assistance, our Engineers and Land Surveyors may be able to assist you.  Specifically we can provide an Elevation Certificate that is used to rate insurance premiums or a LOMA (Letter of Map Amendment) which is used to remove a structure or all or a portion of a lot or parcel of land which may have been mistakenly identified within a special flood hazard area (SFHA). Our Richmond, Virginia professional staff can help you wade through the flood plain regulations.
