Floods cause more damage and economic losses in the United States than any other type of natural disaster, and homeowners’ insurance does not typically cover flood damage. All areas are at risk for flooding — not just coastal or low-lying areas. Out-of-date floodplain mapping may be costing a client’s citizens increased insurance rates or, worse, they may not be aware of their need for flood insurance. Timmons Group can help protect them.
Our Civil Engineers work with public and private clients, including Local government and private development, to prepare detailed floodplain analysis and mapping for large stream reaches or single parcel applications. We complete comprehensive watershed studies and coordinate study approvals with FEMA, and can provide additional in-house support for field survey services and GIS mapping services.
