Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations, 51762-51766 [E7-17821]

Download as PDF 51762 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 11, 2007 / Proposed Rules operations, environmental samples of soil and groundwater were collected. Of the fifty-seven different analytes for soil, three semi-volatile organic compounds and fourteen metals were present at concentrations that exceeded cleanup objectives. The highest concentrations were primarily limited to surface soil samples. The ground water sampling results suggested no impact to the ground water near the Abandoned Powder Burning Pit. A time-critical removal action was conducted between 2002 and 2006 to reduce metal and carcinogenic PAHs contamination in soils. Regulatory review of this action is in progress. yshivers on PROD1PC62 with PROPOSALS Parcel 2—Seneca County Jail [Comment 8] This 25.2 acre parcel is located in the southeast quadrant of SEDA, along its eastern perimeter. The parcel encompasses two SMWUs designated SEAD–50 and SEAD–54, of which 22 acres have been remediated under CERCLA. Investigations were completed to identify potential environmental impacts at each SWMU and were supplemented with risk evaluations that ultimately determined no further action was required for these SWMUs. Based on investigations and remedial activities performed with EPA and State approval and oversight, the SWMUs described below are proposed for deletion from the NPL. SEAD–50 and SEAD–54 Tank Farm Area Characterized as a former tank farm area, approximately 160 above-ground storage tanks were once located within the triangular shaped land tract known as SEAD–50/54. The preliminary investigation of the area, which was performed in 1993, was reported in the SWMU Classification Report, and as a result it was identified as a SWMU. The area which was subsequently identified as SEAD–50 was used for dry material storage that included stockpiles of strategic ores such as antimony, rutile, and silicon carbide. One storage tank (Tank #88) contained asbestos ore material and was assigned a separate SEAD designation (SEAD–54). All tanks were removed prior to implementing a phased program of investigation, evaluation, and remediation. In 1994, an RI and supplemental ESI were performed to characterize the full extent of environmental impacts specific to the SEAD–50/54 area and determine potential threats to human health and the environment. The investigations entailed the completion of a geophysical survey, a drilling VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:47 Sep 10, 2007 Jkt 211001 program, test pit excavations, and an environmental sampling program designed to collect surface soil, subsurface soil, surface water, sediment, and groundwater media. Analytical results identified elevated concentrations of selected metals (arsenic, lead, manganese, potassium, and zinc) in tank farm soil materials that were determined to represent a potential environmental threat. A time-critical removal action was performed from late 2002 to early 2003 to excavate, remove, and dispose of impacted soil material from SEAD–50/54. The ‘‘Final Completion Report’’ for SEAD–50/54, which documented findings of the removal action and confirmatory sampling results, presented data supporting a determination that SEAD– 50/54 no longer poses a threat to human health and the environment. EPA, with the concurrence of the State, approved a remedy in September 2005 which required ‘‘No Further Action’’ for SEADs–50/54. The remedy required that the PID and Warehouse Areas, including SEADs–50/54, be subject to controls restricting future residential development and groundwater use. Accordingly, the recorded deed for this Parcel contains the land use restrictions on land and groundwater use. [Comment 9] These land use controls are considered CERCLA actions and are included among the documents which are the basis for this action. Major Community Involvement Activities The Army published its Community Relations Plan in October 1992 and created a Restoration Advisory Board to facilitate participation of and input from the public throughout the CERCLA cleanup process. Each decision document at the Site has been made available for public comment, discussed at public meetings, and placed in the information repository before the decision document was finalized.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Technical information or comments are requested on the 
proposed Base (1% annual chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed 
BFEs modifications for the communities listed below. The BFEs are the 
basis for the floodplain management measures that the community is 
required either to adopt or to show evidence of being already in effect 
in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the 
National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

DATES: The comment period is ninety (90) days following the second 
publication of this proposed rule in a newspaper of local circulation 
in each community.

ADDRESSES: The proposed BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each 
community. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Engineering 
Management Section, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency 
Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-
3151.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) proposes to make determinations of BFEs and modified BFEs for 
each community listed below, in accordance with section 110 of the 
Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 
67.4(a).
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established 
by other Federal, State or regional entities. These proposed elevations 
are used to meet

[[Page 51763]]

the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to 
calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new 
buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the 
contents in these buildings.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is 
categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, 
Environmental Consideration. An environmental impact assessment has not 
been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. As flood elevation determinations are 
not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-
612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
    Regulatory Classification. This proposed rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This proposed rule involves no 
policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This proposed rule 
meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
