Elevation Certificates provide us with information that is widely used in many aspects of protecting lives and properties. The data that is reported on these forms presents a variety of “sticky points” when individuals completing them do so incorrectly or the data we hope to rely on in completing the forms is in itself confusing or unreliable. After a quick review of the most common variety of uses for Elevation Certificates, we will see various “sticky points” in Sections A through D that can trip up either the one completing the form or those relying on what is reported on the form. We wrap up with a few words about the future of Elevation Certificates in the evolution of the NFIP.
