What Does Base Flood Elevation Mean?

What Does Base Flood Elevation Mean?

FEMA defines the Base Flood Elevation or BFE as:

The computed elevation to which floodwater is anticipated to rise during the base flood. Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) are shown on Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and on the flood profiles.

The BFE is the regulatory requirement for the elevation or floodproofing of structures. The relationship between the BFE and a structure's elevation determines the flood insurance premium.
