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 BFEs are used to meet 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.

clarifies the table representing the flooding source(s), location of 
referenced elevation, the effective and modified elevation in feet and 
the communities affected for Graham County, North Carolina, and 
Incorporated Areas; specifically, for flooding source ``Cochran 
Creek,'' than was previously published.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before February 15, 2008.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. B-7734 and 
D-7818, to William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management 
Section, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency,

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Engineering 
Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management 
Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-2903.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1-percent-annual-
chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities 
participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), 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 BFEs are 
used to meet 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.
