ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork E:\FR\FM\23JAN1.SGM 23JAN1 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.

SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 
100-year flood elevation). This requirement reduces the risks of flood 
hazards to new buildings in SFHAs and reduces insurance rates. However, 
FEMA 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.
