Flooding in Simonton
The current Flood Policy on this home is less than $1000 per year.
Simonton and Valley Lodge are located near the Brazos River. There have been a few times on record that the neighborhood has flooded over the last 50 or 60 years. These floods have had more impact on older homes or, more specifically, homes built at a lower elevation. The newer homes and properties are usually built higher.
The two highest floods on record were the “Memorial Day Flood” in 2016 and the Hurricane Harvey flood in 2017. These two floods were significantly higher in elevation than any other flood in recorded history according to the Richmond flood gauge, with as much as 3 feet of difference. (see historic crests below)
1114 Wagon was built in 2007 and it was constructed at a fairly high level at the time, 113.3′ above sea level according to the Elevation Certificate from 06/11/20. Water made it into the home during those two historic-level flood events, maybe not too much, but some. No other floods have flooded the home. That was in 2017 and 2016 respectively.
