44 CFR Part 67

[Docket ID FEMA-2011-0002; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1207]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On August 3, 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 lieu of the information 
published at 76 FR 46701. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, and effective and 
modified elevations for the City of Cadiz, Kentucky. Specifically, it 
addresses the flooding sources Little River (backwater effects from 
Lake Barkley) and Little River Tributary 1 (backwater effects from Lake 
Barkley).

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before June 14, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1207, 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

[[Page 15665]]

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.

Correction

    In the proposed rule published at 76 FR 46701, in the August 3, 
2011, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``City of Cadiz, 
Kentucky'' addressed the flooding sources Little River (backwater 
effects from Lake Barkley) and Little River Tributary 1 (backwater 
effects from Lake Barkley). That table contained inaccurate information 
as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified 
elevation in feet, and/or communities affected for those flooding 
sources.
    In this notice, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate 
information, to address these prior errors. The information provided 
below should be used in lieu of that previously published for the City 
of Cadiz, Kentucky.
