Colorado; Emergency and Related Determinations, 2895-2896 [E7-883]

Download as PDF 2895 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 14 / Tuesday, January 23, 2007 / Notices and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed continuing information collection. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments concerning the certification of flood proof residential basements in Special Flood Hazard Areas. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), regulation 44 CFR 60.3, Floodplain Management Criteria for Flood-Prone Areas, ensures that buildings in communities participating in the NFIP, in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), have their lowest floor elevations including basement at or above the Base Flood Elevation (the 100year flood elevation). This requirement reduces the risks of flood hazards to new buildings in SFHAs and reduces insurance rates. However, FEMA SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: regulation 44 CFR 60.6(c) allows communities to apply for an exception to permit and certify the construction of floodproofed residential basements in SFHAs. The certification must ensure that the community has demonstrated that that areas of special flood hazard, in which residential basements will be permitted, are subject to shallow and low velocity flooding and that there is adequate flood warning time to notify residents of impending flood. This certification allows the community to ensure that local floodplain management ordinances are met and allows property owners to receive a ‘‘discounted’’ flood insurance rate applicable to residential buildings with floodproofed basements. Collection of Information Title: Residential Basement Floodproofing Certificate. Type of Information Collection: Revision of a currently approved collection. OMB Number: 1660–0033. Form Numbers: FEMA Form 81–78. Abstract: FEMA Form 81–78 is only used in communities that have been granted an exception by FEMA to allow the construction of flood proof residential basements in Special Flood Hazard Areas, (SFHAs). Homeowners must have a registered professional engineer or architect complete FEMA Form 81–78 for development or inspection of a properly designed and constructed basement and certify that the basement design and methods of constructions are in accordance with floodplain management ordinances. In any case homeowners are responsible for the fees involved with these services. Homeowners also provide FEMA Form 81–8 to the insurance agent to receive discounted flood insurance under the NFIP. Affected Public: Individuals of Households and Business or other forprofit. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 487.5 hours.

The total annual cost to homeowners is estimated to be $48,750. The estimated wage rate for an architect or engineer to complete FEMA Form 81–78 is $13,023.
