Flood Zone Designation

Marshfield, MA

When FEMA decided to update their Flood Insurance Rate Maps (F.I.R.M.) for the Town of Marshfield, this property was placed within a flood zone and the homeowners noticed a sizable increase in their homeowners insurance. Morse Engineering was hired to determine whether the home was actually located in the flood plain by preparing a FEMA Flood Elevation Certification and filing a request for a Letter of Map Amendment. The result of Morse’s services were that the site was not located within the flood plain and the F.I.R.M. Map for this property has been amended to avoid the excessive insurance premiums.
