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. Seems like the well is part of the structure and the LAG would be for the grade on the outside. I have not found anything on the FEMA website that tells me how it should be.

J Keith Maxwell replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"Lee, I think it would be Diagram 2B and the Grade would be the ground, based on the Diagram in the instructions. Since the finished floor would be the controlling factor for being in or out of the flood, the LAG by the window would prevent surface…"

"I had this discussion with a FEMA tech at the first of last year.  He claimed that the LAG was the bottom of the access well to the crawl space. I could not get him to budge and the LOMA was denied. Since then the new EC has come out with…"

Donald E Robinson, PLS, CFS replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"I agree with mister Rosa.  If the window well is surrounded by earth, then the LAG would not be the window well.  Same thing with a basement or cellar that is surrounded by earth.  Water would have to enter from the higher…"

Lee Bodenheimer replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"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…"

ROB ROSA replied to Lee Bodenheimer's discussion Loma. Lag question
"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."

Lee Bodenheimer replied to ROB ROSA's discussion One Man Surveying
"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."

"how do you "do without a survey?" that sounds like the result of not knowing the value of a survey.."
