Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland 
Security.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Comments are requested on proposed flood hazard 
determinations, which may include additions or modifications of any 
Base Flood Elevation (BFE), base flood depth, Special Flood Hazard Area 
(SFHA) boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway on the 
Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and where applicable, in the 
supporting Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports for the communities 
listed in the table below. The purpose of this notice is to seek 
general information and comment regarding the preliminary FIRM, and 
where applicable, the FIS report that the Federal Emergency Management 
Agency (FEMA) has provided to the affected communities. The FIRM and 
FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the 
community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in 
effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the 
National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, the FIRM and FIS 
report, once effective, will be used by insurance agents and others to 
calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings 
and the contents of those buildings.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 25, 2021.

ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report 
for each community are available for inspection at both the online 
location https://hazards.fema.gov/femaportal/prelimdownload and the 
respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables below. 
Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each 
community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at 
https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.
    You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-2103, 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) [email protected].

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering 
Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 
400 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-7659, or (email) 
[email protected]; or visit the FEMA Mapping and Insurance 
eXchange (FMIX) online at https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard 
determinations for each community listed 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 used to calculate the appropriate 
flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM 
and FIS report become effective.
    The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are 
provided in the tables below. Any request for reconsideration of the 
revised flood hazard information 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 also will be considered before 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 only may 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 https://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_overview.pdf.
    The watersheds and/or communities affected are listed in the tables 
below. The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for each 
community are available for inspection at both the online location 
https://hazards.fema.gov/femaportal/prelimdownload and the respective 
Community Map Repository address listed in the tables. For communities 
with multiple ongoing Preliminary studies, the studies can be 
identified by the unique project number and Preliminary FIRM date 
listed in the tables. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS 
report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map 
Service Center at https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.
