Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations; Correction, 55785-55787 [2012-22302]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2012 / Proposed Rules 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 19320, in the April 14, 2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ‘‘Franklin County, North Carolina, and Incorporated Areas’’ addressed several flooding sources, including Taylors Creek. The proposed rule incorrectly listed the flooding source name as Taylors Branch instead of Taylors Creek. This proposed rule correction is reopening the comment period for Taylors Creek, from the confluence with the Tar River to approximately 250 feet upstream of West Green Street, due to the error in the flooding source name previously published proposed rule at 75 FR 19320.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed SUMMARY: 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 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.

The table, entitled ‘‘Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions)’’ addressed the following flooding sources: Little Schuylkill River, Mahanoy Creek, Schuylkill River, and West Branch Schuylkill River.

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations; Correction

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On October 7, 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 62061. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for Schuylkill County, 
Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses the 
following flooding sources: Good Spring Creek, Little Schuylkill River, 
Mahanoy Creek, Schuylkill River, and West Branch Schuylkill River.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before December 10, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1145, 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.

Corrections

    In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 62061, in the October 7, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Schuylkill County, 
Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions)'' addressed the following flooding 
sources: Little Schuylkill River, Mahanoy Creek, Schuylkill River, and 
West Branch Schuylkill River. That table contained inaccurate 
information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and 
modified elevation in feet, or communities affected for the flooding 
sources Schuylkill River, Little Schuylkill River and West Branch 
Schuylkill River. In addition, it did not include the flooding source 
Good Spring Creek. 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.
