Big Lake Fuels LLC submitted an LOI and WSA on November 7, 2013 regarding the company’s proposed construction and operation of a new LHG facility which will be located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Under 33 CFR 127.009, after receiving an LOI, the COTP issues a Letter of Recommendation (LOR) as to the suitability of the waterway for LNG or LHG marine traffic to the appropriate jurisdictional authorities. The LOR is based on a series of factors outlined in 33 CFR 127.009 that are related to the physical nature of the affected waterway and issues of safety and security associated with LNG or LHG marine traffic on the affected waterway. The purpose of this notice is to solicit public comments on the proposed increase in LHG marine traffic on the Calcasieu Ship Channel and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. The Coast Guard believes that input from the public may be useful to the COTP with respect to development of the LOR. Additionally, the Coast Guard intends to work with the Area Maritime Security Committee, Port Arthur, Texas and the Southeast Texas Waterways Advisory Council (SETWAC) to form subcommittees comprised of affected port users and stakeholders. The goal of these subcommittees will be to gather information to help the COTP assess the suitability of the associated waterway for increased LHG marine traffic as it relates to navigational safety and security. On January 24, 2011, the Coast Guard published Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01–2011, ‘‘Guidance Related to Waterfront Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Facilities.’’ NVIC 01–2011 provides guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LNG facilities. While NVIC 01–2011 is specific to LNG, it provides useful process information and guidance for owners and operators seeking approval to build and operate LHG facilities as well. The Coast Guard will refer to NVIC 01–2011 for process information and guidance in evaluating Big Lake Fuels LLC’s WSA. A copy of NVIC 01–2011 is available for viewing in the public docket for this notice and also on the Coast Guard’s Web site at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/nvic/ 2010s.asp. This notice is issued under authority of 33 U.S.C. §§ 1223–1225, Department of Homeland Security Delegation Number 0170.1(70), 33 CFR 127.009, and 33 CFR 103.205.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was established by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended (NFIA) (42 U.S.C. 4001–4129). The NFIA authorizes the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to establish and carry out a national flood insurance program that enables property owners in participating communities to purchase insurance as a protection against flood losses in exchange for State and community adoption of floodplain management regulations that reduce future flood damages. Community participation in the NFIP is voluntary, and is based on an agreement between communities and the Federal Government. If a community adopts and enforces floodplain management requirements to reduce future flood risk to new construction and substantial SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 improvements in floodplains, the Federal Government will make flood insurance available within the community as a financial protection against flood losses. 42 U.S.C. 4102(c) and 4022(a); 44 CFR 60.1(a). In 2000, FEMA established by regulation, at 44 CFR 59.30, a pilot inspection procedure under the NFIP to help verify that structures comply with the community’s floodplain management ordinances and to ensure that property owners pay flood insurance premiums commensurate with their flood risk. 65 FR 39726, June 27, 2000. The inspection procedure requires owners of insured buildings to obtain an inspection from community floodplain management officials as a condition of renewing the Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP) on the building. The pilot procedure applies in the communities of: (1) Monroe County, Florida, (2) the Village of Islamorada located in Monroe County, Florida, and (3) the City of Marathon, located in Monroe County, Florida. 65 FR 39726, June 27, 2000; 67 FR 10631, March 9, 2002; 68 FR 59126, Oct. 14, 2003. The pilot inspection procedure served as an additional tool for the three communities to enforce their flood damage prevention ordinances, and remain compliant with the NFIP regulations, given unique statutory constraints on inspections and rate of growth mandates in Florida, housing limits within the communities, and related factors. These related factors included: the nature of the flood hazard and damage potential; the number of possible violations (an estimated 2,000– 4,000 illegally built enclosures in the entire County); the potential for loss of life in the event of a flood; and, the factors described above limited the County’s ability to determine whether a building with an enclosure complies with the local flood damage prevention ordinance. FEMA establishes the start date and the termination dates for implementing the pilot inspection procedure upon the recommendation of FEMA’s Regional Administrator and in consultation with each community. 44 CFR 59.30(c). FEMA is permitted to extend the implementation of the inspection procedure with a new termination after consultation with the community and based on good cause. 44 CFR 59.30(c). The start date for the inspection procedure for Monroe County and the Village of Islamorada was January 1, 2001, and October 1, 2002, for the City of Marathon. The original termination date for the Village of Islamorada and the City of Marathon was January 1, 2004, and was December 31, 2007, for E:\FR\FM\14JAN1.SGM 14JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 9 / Tuesday, January 14, 2014 / Notices Monroe County.

Upon further consultation and evaluation, the inspection procedure was extended to June 28, 2013, to allow for the completion of the inspection procedure. Following consultation with the three communities, FEMA found that the Village of Islamorada, the City of Marathon, and Monroe County, Florida, had fulfilled the requirements of the inspection procedure.

on June 28, 2013, for Monroe County, the Village of Islamorada, and the 
City of Marathon, Florida.

DATES: Effective Dates: The effective date of termination for the 
inspection procedure for Monroe County, the Village of Islamorada, and 
the City of Marathon, Florida, is June 28, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) 
was established by the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended 
(NFIA) (42 U.S.C. 4001-4129). The NFIA authorizes the Administrator of 
the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to establish and carry 
out a national flood insurance program that enables property owners in 
participating communities to purchase insurance as a protection against 
flood losses in exchange for State and community adoption of floodplain 
management regulations that reduce future flood damages. Community 
participation in the NFIP is voluntary, and is based on an agreement 
between communities and the Federal Government. If a community adopts 
and enforces floodplain management requirements to reduce future flood 
risk to new construction and substantial improvements in floodplains, 
the Federal Government will make flood insurance available within the 
community as a financial protection against flood losses. 42 U.S.C. 
4102(c) and 4022(a); 44 CFR 60.1(a).
    In 2000, FEMA established by regulation, at 44 CFR 59.30, a pilot 
inspection procedure under the NFIP to help verify that structures 
comply with the community's floodplain management ordinances and to

with their flood risk. 65 FR 39726, June 27, 2000. The inspection 
procedure requires owners of insured buildings to obtain an inspection 
from community floodplain management officials as a condition of 
renewing the Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP) on the building. 
The pilot procedure applies in the communities of: (1) Monroe County, 
Florida, (2) the Village of Islamorada located in Monroe County, 
Florida, and (3) the City of Marathon, located in Monroe County, 
Florida. 65 FR 39726, June 27, 2000; 67 FR 10631, March 9, 2002; 68 FR

    The pilot inspection procedure served as an additional tool for the

illegally built enclosures in the entire County); the potential for 
loss of life in the event of a flood; and, the factors described above 
limited the County's ability to determine whether a building with an 
enclosure complies with the local flood damage prevention ordinance.

was extended to December 31, 2011 by letter to the communities. Upon

three communities will continue to use their authorities and 
enforcement provisions (e.g., additional inspections during the 
building permit process, other enforcement provisions in their flood 
damage prevention ordinance, or a Section 1316 declaration by FEMA, if 
all other methods fail to bring compliance) beyond June 28, 2013.
