These proposed flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required.

Additional information regarding the SRP process can be found online at https://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.

Security.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On January 25, 2021 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 erroneous information. The table provided here represents 
the proposed flood hazard determinations and communities affected for 
Columbia County, Pennsylvania (All Jurisdictions).

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before June 10, 2021.

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

    You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-2102, 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 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 https://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 86 
FR 6898-6899 in the January 25, 2021, issue of the Federal Register, 
FEMA published a table titled ``Columbia County, Pennsylvania and 
Incorporated Areas''. This table contained inaccurate information in 
the header 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.
