The elevation in NAVD 88 would be:

**54.2 + -0.609 = 53.591 or 53.6 ft**. Remember, if you add a negative number to the existing elevation, the resulting elevation will be a lower number. In the second example, the conversion factor for Arroyo Seco is 2.99. So for a structure affected by flooding from Arroyo Seco, the elevation in NAVD 88 would be:- 885KB
