Elevation Certificates are one of the basic tools of floodplain management.  ECs touch on the work of Zoning Administrators/Administrative Officers, Engineers, Surveyors, and Insurance Agents.   We’ll look at the current Elevation Certificate, consider how it is used, and discuss possible errors or corrections needed for the form… or the structure.


Steve Lotspeich is the Planning and Zoning Director, and the Community Rating System (CRS) Coordinator for the Town of Waterbury.   Steve will join us to discuss aspects of Elevation Certificates as they inform his municipal work. 


These Drop-In Discussions are strictly “live-on-Teams” and will not be recorded.   The discussions are intended to support the work of municipal officials who are responsible for floodplain and river corridor regulations, and/or are involved in the broader work of floodplain management.


If you have questions about the event, or using Teams, feel free to reach out to


Future invitations to the Drop In Discussions will be posted to the Flood Resilience Listserv and also as News on


See you soon,
