I live on the waterfront on a piece of land that has a gradual incline from the waterfront toward our house forming a hill along the waterfront in both directions. We are elevated about 17’ feet above sea level and don’t need a bulkhead at the waterfront due to a barrier island that is south of Big Lagoon (the body of water our property is on). My point is that our neighborhood does not have erosion problems. My neighbor recently had several dump trucks of broken cement/street rubble dropped at her house and stated she plans on removing her grass at the base of the hill, adding the 7 dumptrucks worth of cement/highway remnants. She then plans on backfilling and replacing the sod.

My concern is the increased elevation to her property will reroute water to my property.

Is there anyone familiar with the Escambia County or Florida codes which would address situations such as this?

I can't believe you're asking this on a forum. Go directly to the permitting office and see if this is even allowed. And yes, water will reroute to your property.

Thank you for your response. I have already contacted code enforcement and the report is being processed. Just wanted input from the city data community.
