[Docket ID FEMA–2010–0003; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA–B–1158] Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS. ACTION: Proposed rule; correction. AGENCY: On December 16, 2010, 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 75 FR 78654. The table provided here represents the flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and modified elevations, and communities affected for the City of Newport News, Virginia. Specifically, it addresses the flooding sources Newmarket Creek, Newmarket Creek Tributary, Stoney Run, Stoney Run-Colony Pines Branch, and Stoney Run-Denbigh Branch. SUMMARY: State City/town/county The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of Base (1% annualchance) 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Source of flooding 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 75 FR 78654, in the December 16, 2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ‘‘City of Newport News, Virgina’’ addressed the flooding sources Newmarket Creek, Newmarket Creek Tributary, Stoney Run, Stoney Run-Colony Pines Branch, and Stoney Run-Denbigh Branch. That table contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, and/or communities affected for the flooding sources Stoney Run-Colony Pines Branch and Stoney Run-Denbigh Branch. In this notice, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information, to address these prior errors.

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.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On December 16, 2010, 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 75 FR 78654. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for the City of Newport 
News, Virginia. Specifically, it addresses the flooding sources 
Newmarket Creek, Newmarket Creek Tributary, Stoney Run, Stoney Run-
Colony Pines Branch, and Stoney Run-Denbigh Branch.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before November 26, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1158, 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 75 FR 78654, in the December 16, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``City of Newport News, 
Virgina'' addressed the flooding sources Newmarket Creek, Newmarket 
Creek Tributary, Stoney Run, Stoney Run-Colony Pines Branch, and Stoney 
Run-Denbigh Branch. That table contained inaccurate information as to 
the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation 
in feet, and/or communities affected for the flooding sources Stoney 
Run-Colony Pines Branch and Stoney Run-Denbigh Branch. 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.
