SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Flooding source(s) 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.

SUMMARY: On September 13, 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 55515. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for Mercer County, 
Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions). Specifically, it addresses the 
following flooding sources: Baker Run, Little Shenango River, Munnell 
Run, Neshannock Creek, Otter Creek, Sawmill Run, Shenango River, and 
Wolf Creek.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before March 11, 2013.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1127, 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

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 55515, in the September 13, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Mercer County, 
Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions)'' addressed the following flooding 
sources: Baker Run, Little Shenango River, Munnell Run, Neshannock 
Creek, Otter Creek, Sawmill Run, Shenango River, and Wolf Creek. 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 source, the Shenango River. 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.
