44 CFR Part 67

[Docket ID FEMA-2010-0003; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1110]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations; Correction

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On April 14, 2010, FEMA published in the Federal Register a 
proposed rule that included an erroneous name for one of the flooding 
sources for Franklin County, North Carolina and Incorporated Areas. The 
flooding source name should have read Taylors Creek instead of Taylors 
Branch.

DATES: Comments pertaining to Taylors Creek for the location beginning 
at the confluence with the Tar River to approximately 250 feet upstream 
of West Green Street are to be submitted on or before October 11, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1110, 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 the community must change any 
existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain

[[Page 55785]]

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 75 FR 19320, in the April 14, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Franklin County, North 
Carolina, and Incorporated Areas'' addressed several flooding sources, 
including Taylors Creek. The proposed rule incorrectly listed the 
flooding source name as Taylors Branch instead of Taylors Creek. This 
proposed rule correction is reopening the comment period for Taylors 
Creek, from the confluence with the Tar River to approximately 250 feet 
upstream of West Green Street, due to the error in the flooding source 
name previously published proposed rule at 75 FR 19320.
