Specifications include, but are not limited to:Design flood elevations are indispensable tools for managing the risks of flooding in floodhazard areas and are already widely incorporated in building codes, zoning regulations, andengineering standards. The design flood elevation (DFE) corresponds to the maximum level ofwater that an engineered structure has been designed to resist, being a foundational input forthe calculation of design flood loads, which then set the parameters for structural design. DFEsare also used as a vertical threshold above which the lowest floor of the lowest enclosed area,important utilities, life safety systems, and other critical equipment must be elevated.If elevation above the DFE is not feasible, floodproofing critical areas below the DFE may bepermitted. Floodproofing is any combination of structural or nonstructural adjustments,changes, or actions that reduce or eliminate flood damage to a structure, contents, andattendant utilities and equipment. Dry floodproofing renders a structure envelope substantiallyimpermeable to the entrance of floodwater, resulting in a space free of through cracks,openings, or other channels that permit unobstructed passage of water and seepage duringflooding, and prevents accumulation of more than 4 in. of water depth in such a space during aperiod of 24 hours (see Section 5.1). Wet floodproofing relies on the use of flood-damageresistantmaterials and design/construction techniques to minimize flood damages to areasbelow the DFE of a structure that are intentionally allowed to flood (see Section 5.2). Throughthese applications, DFEs can help limit the exposure of occupants and property to the damagingeffects of flooding and ensure that basic functions can be maintained during a flooding event orquickly restored thereafter.
