Elevation Certificates

Elevation Certificates are FEMA forms used to rate a structure for flood insurance purposes. They are also needed by Wharton Code Enforcement Department to verify that a structure has been built in compliance with the floodplain ordinance and other regulations. The City has been requiring elevation certficates for development throughout the community at three stages:


  • Along with the construction drawings
  • Building under construction
  • Finished construction
