Drainage & Flood Plains
EnergyPlex Park has been designated as a Zone X, which is categorized as a moderate to low flood risk, outside of the 500-year flood plain and protected by levee from 100-year floods. It is recommended that building construction be at least 18″ higher than the 100-year flood water surface elevation at the nearest cross section. At this location, the rainfall for a 100-year, 6-hour storm and a 25-year, 6-hour storm was determined to be 5.30 and 4.03 inches respectively. For full details, download the complete study.
