FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Federal Emergency Management Agency [Docket ID FEMA–2017–0002; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA–B–1657] Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations Federal Emergency Management Agency; DHS. ACTION: Notice; correction. AGENCY: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard determinations for each community listed in the table below, 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 flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. 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 flood hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM and FIS report become effective. Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the SRP may only be exercised after SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 28, 2016, FEMA published in the Federal Register a proposed flood hazard determination notice that contained an erroneous table. This notice provides corrections to that table, to be used in lieu of the information published at 81 FR 85622. The table provided here represents the proposed flood hazard determinations and communities affected for Davis County, Iowa and Incorporated Areas. DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before June 5, 2017. ADDRESSES: The Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for each community are available for inspection at both the online location and the respective Community Map Repository address listed in the table below. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at www.msc.fema.gov for comparison. You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA–B–1657, to Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 400 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–7659, or (email) patrick.sacbibit@fema.dhs.gov. SUMMARY: Community FEMA and local communities have been engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal. Additional information regarding the SRP process can be found online at http://floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_ fact_sheet.pdf. The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are provided in the table below. Any request for reconsideration of the revised flood hazard determinations shown on the Preliminary FIRM and FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report are made final. Correction In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 81 FR 85622 in the November 28, 2016, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table titled ‘‘Davis County, Iowa and Incorporated Areas’’.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard 
determinations for each community listed in the table below, 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 flood hazard determinations, together with the 
floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum 
that are required. 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 flood 
hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management 
requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate 
flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM 
and FIS report become effective.
    Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to 
communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are 
independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other 
pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and 
technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the 
SRP may only be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been 
engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days 
without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal. Additional 
information regarding the SRP process can be found online at http://floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_fact_sheet.pdf.
    The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are 
provided in the table below. Any request for reconsideration of the 
revised flood hazard determinations shown on the Preliminary FIRM and 
FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 
67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard 
determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report 
are made final.

Correction

    In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 81 
FR 85622 in the November 28, 2016, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA 
published a table titled ``Davis County, Iowa and Incorporated Areas''. 
This table contained inaccurate information as to the address of the 
community map repository for the City of Bloomfield featured in the 
table.
    In this document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the 
accurate information. The information provided below should be used in 
lieu of that previously published.
