Mandated Grading and Drainage Plans for Non-Master-Planned Community Lots
FEMA Flood Zone "AE" and the Importance of Mitigation
As a response to increased flood risks, the City of Houston and surrounding areas now require grading and drainage plans for non-master-planned community lots, including tear-down homes.
This requirement is particularly crucial for lots situated in the FEMA flood zone "AE".
Conducting meticulous mitigation and conveyance analysis is essential to ensure the safety and resilience of these properties.
