[Docket No. FEMA-B-7786]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On September 9, 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 52234. The table provided here represents the 
flooding source, location of referenced elevation, effective and 
modified elevation, and communities affected for Plymouth County, 
Massachusetts (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses the 
flooding source ``Atlantic Ocean.''

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 (email) 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 73 FR 52234, in the September 9, 
2008, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Plymouth County, 
Massachusetts (All Jurisdictions)'' addressed the flooding source 
``Atlantic Ocean.'' That table contained inaccurate information as to 
the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation 
in feet, or communities affected for this flooding source. 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.
