Flood Resistant Design and Construction provides minimum requirements for flood-resistant design and construction of structures located in flood hazard areas. Revising the earlier ASCE/SEI 24-98, this standard applies to new structures, including subsequent work, and to substantial repair or improvement of existing structures that are not historic structures. Specific topics include: basic requirements for flood hazard areas; high-risk flood hazard areas; coastal high-risk hazard areas and Coastal A Zones; materials; dry and wet floodproofing; utilities; building access; and miscellaneous construction.
