Flood Analysis

TEC provides flood analysis engineering services.  The regulations for development in and adjacent to floodplains are constantly evolving. 

The Federal Emeregency Management Administration (FEMA) dictates the criteria under which projects can be built within regulated floodplains and controls the allocation of "flood insurance".

Local jurisdictions, such as King County administer the regulations under the audit authority of the State Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

TEC is well versed in floodplain code requirements and regulations, and can help to guide a project through that aspect of the permit process.

TEC performs the following flood analysis services:

King County Zero Rise Analysis

King County 3' (depth) by 3' (flow speed) Analysis
