Flood hazard mitigation is the process we undertake to reduce the risk of future flooding.
Dry Flood proofing and structure elevation and or relocation are the best ways to hazard mitigate from flooding while preserving re-useable buildings. Elevation and dry flood proofing of buildings keeps the neighborhoods of communities intact. It also preserves the vital property tax revenues that communities need for streets/sewers/police/fire and school funding. Flood hazard mitigation-elevation and dry flood proofing also keeps property values stable and or increases the value of the land/buildings due to their being made safe from flood events and eligible for greatly reduced flood insurance rates into the future. The most important first step in flood hazard mitigating a property is the decision of the property owner to undertake the project.
