The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities.

44 CFR Part 67

[Docket ID FEMA-2013-0002; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1212]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On August 17, 2011, 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 addition to the information 
published at 76 FR 50960. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for Pitt County, North 
Carolina, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the 
following flooding sources: Pea Branch and Reedy Branch.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before July 15, 2013.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1212, 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.
    In the proposed rule published at 76 FR 50960, in the August 17, 
2011, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Pitt County, North 
Carolina, and Incorporated Areas'' did not address the flooding sources 
Pea Branch and Reedy Branch. That table omitted information as to the 
location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in 
feet, and communities affected for those flooding sources. In this 
document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate 
information, to address these prior errors. The information provided 
below should be used in addition to that previously published.

Correction

    In proposed rule FR Doc. 2011-20966, beginning on page 50952 in the 
issue of August 17, 2011, make the following correction. On page 50957, 
add the following:
