A Guide to Relocating Homes for Flood Protection

D. Allen Hughes, PE

Relocation of a home to a new site above the design flood elevation (DFE) can offer the greatest security from future flooding.

Relocation involves moving an entire structure to another location. Selection of the new site is usually conducted by the homeowner, often in consultation with a design professional to ensure that critical site selection factors such as floodplain location, accessibility, utility service, cost, and homeowner preference meet engineering and local regulatory concerns. Relocation as a retrofitting measure not only relieves anxiety about future flooding, but also offers the opportunity to reduce future flood insurance premiums. This information in this course could also be useful in relocation projects that do not involve flood protection.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
