    A few things that might help:

    1. You can use GFCI breakers instead of receptacles.
    2. If you use receptacles, you only need one per run on the first of run, provided it's wired in series to protect receptacles downstream.
    3. You can access the latest code (or whatever code you're under) online for free. Must view it on the nfpa site, but very nice for researching stuff like this.
    4. Consider combined GFCI/AFCI.

    The question is really what is grade level vs a minimum rise IMO.

    1” or 1’, is either or both above grade level? IDK
    Why can't one raise grade before building on it? It is done quite often for drainage purposes. Would also be poor design to put in a wood floor if in a location you expect it to flood frequently.

    I don't think 210.8 is about temporary flood issues for something that isn't expected to flood on a regular basis.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.
