[Docket No. FEMA-B-7736 & D-7820]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On September 26, 2007, FEMA published in the Federal Register 
a proposed rule that contained an erroneous table. This notice provides 
corrections to that table, to be used in lieu of the information 
published at 72 FR 54624. The table provided here represents the 
flooding source, location of referenced elevation, effective and 
modified elevation, and communities affected for the Town of Franklin 
and the Unincorporated Areas of Macon County, North Carolina. 
Specifically, it addresses flooding sources ``Cartoogechaye Creek,'' 
``Jones Creek,'' ``Poplar Cove Creek,'' ``Rabbit Creek,'' and ``Rocky 
Branch.''

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before June 2, 2008.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
7736 &D-7820, to William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management 
Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 
500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472 (202) 646-3151, or (e-mail) 
bill.blanton@dhs.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, 
Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal 
Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472 
(202) 646-3151 or.(e-mail) bill.blanton@dhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% 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 
elevations 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.

Correction

    In the proposed rule published at 72 FR 54624, in the September 26, 
2007 issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Macon County, North 
Carolina, and Incorporated Areas,'' addressed flooding sources 
``Cartoogechaye Creek,'' ``Jones Creek,'' ``Poplar Cove Creek,'' 
``Rabbit Creek,'' and ``Rocky Branch.'' That table contained inaccurate 
information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and 
modified elevation in feet, or communities affected for these flooding 
sources.
    In this notice of correction, FEMA is publishing a new table to 
address these errors. The table below should be used in lieu of that 
previously published.
