The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On November 5, 2008, 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 73 FR 65815. The table provided here represents the 
flooding source, location of referenced elevation, effective and 
modified elevation, and communities affected for St. Clair County, 
Michigan (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses flooding 
source ``Belle River.''

Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal 
Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annual-chance)

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 73 FR 65815, in the November 5, 
2008 issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``St. Clair County, 
Michigan and Incorporated Areas'' addressed flooding source ``Belle 
River.'' 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, FEMA 
is publishing a table containing the accurate information, to address 
these prior errors. The information provided below should be used in 
lieu of that previously published.
