DFE Determination Method

April 18, 2023
Lucy Randl

The ways that communities regulate to a freeboard (or don't) varies greatly across our partner communities. To accommodate a variety of different Design Flood Elevation use cases in the Forerunner software, users can now set a DFE Determination Method in the Settings tab of their account that will apply to all properties in the SFHA across their dashboard. The DFE Determination Methods are outlined below:

  • Automatic: The DFE is automatically calculated by Forerunner on properties using a freeboard value provided by users.
  • Manual: Users will be able to manually enter a DFE value on each property. This is for communities where DFE logic extends beyond just a single freeboard value.
  • Disabled: DFE and freeboard values will not appear on a given account.
