The correct flooding source name is Bayou Grosse Tete. This proposed rule correction is reopening the comment period for Bayou Grosse Tete, for the location approximately 0.47 mile downstream of I–190 and approximately 1.21 miles upstream of I– 190, due to the error in listing the flooding source name in the previously published proposed rule at 74 FR 66602.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On December 16, 2009, FEMA published in the Federal Register a 
proposed rule that included an erroneous flooding source name for the 
Town of Livonia in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. The flooding source 
name of Bayou Fordoche, in effect for the location approximately 0.47 
mile downstream of I-190 and approximately 1.21 miles upstream of I-190 
should have been listed as Bayou Grosse Tete.

DATES: Comments pertaining to the Bayou Grosse Tete Base Flood 
Elevations for the location approximately 0.47 mile downstream of I-190 
and approximately 1.21 miles upstream of I-190 are to be submitted on 
or before November 26, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1083, to Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Federal 
Insurance and Mitigation Administration, Federal Emergency Management 
Agency, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-4064 or 
(email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Luis Rodriguez, Chief, Engineering 
Management Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, 
Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street SW., Washington, DC 
20472, (202) 646-4064 or (email) Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.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 minimum requirements. 
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 
also are used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium 
rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, 
and for the contents in those buildings.

Correction

    In the proposed rule published at 74 FR 66602, in the December 16, 
2009, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Pointe Coupee Parish, 
Louisiana, and Incorporated Areas'' addressed several flooding sources, 
including Bayou Fordoche. The proposed rule incorrectly listed the 
flooding source name, Bayou Fordoche, for the location approximately 
0.47 mile downstream of I-190 and approximately 1.21 miles upstream of 
I-190. The correct flooding source name is Bayou Grosse Tete. This 
proposed rule correction is reopening the comment period for Bayou 
Grosse Tete, for the location approximately 0.47 mile downstream of I-
190 and approximately 1.21 miles upstream of I-190, due to the error in 
listing the flooding source name in the previously published proposed 
rule at 74 FR 66602.
