The Biggert-Water Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 became effective on October 1st and it brings significant reforms to the national Flood Insurance Program.  All homeowners who have flood insurance  policies will need a new Elevation Certificate when the policy comes up for renewal.  Cardinal Surveying utilizes GPS technology to obtain accurate information for the required elevation certificate in a timely manner.  Cardinal Surveying also verifies the latest based flood elevations (BFEs) numbers with MSD prior to conducting the survey.  Richard Matheny, PLS, attended a seminar in August presented by Kentucky Association of Mitigation Mangers on the new FEMA standards.  Please call us today if you need a F.E.M.A. Elevation Certificate.
