Floodproofing your property is:
- Protecting against sewer back up during heavy rains
- Raising the house above flood levels
- Water proofing your home
Any alteration to your building or property requires a permit from the Community Development Department
Preparing for a Flood
If you are in the floodplain and know a flood is coming, you should shut off the gas and electricity and move valuable contents to a higher elevation. In a flooding situation, it is always helpful to have a prepared checklist.
