Loma. Lag question

What is the LAG for a loma for a house that has a window well. Is it the grade. On the outside of the well or the inside of the well.

"Ei found a fema technical publication on line the explains it. The lag is bottom of the well but if the original ground was higher you can get a loma based on intervening natural ground. I assume that if the natural ground was still to low you would…"

Gary Proctor replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"I would agree with this and it makes sense (even though that is often not a required element). Just like a home with a crawl space where the water could enter the crawlspace through foundation vents or the access, the floor of the crawlspace is not…"

"Flood water has to get up to the hight of the window well before it gets into the window....lowest grade next to the window well is what we use for LAG."

"WE NEVER USE A ONE MAN SURVEY CREW FOR 2 very important reasonsS 1. It is unsafe, one person can have an accident, health issue etc. 2. it does not allow for training, surveyors are few and far between around here."
