44 CFR Part 67

[Docket ID FEMA-2010-0003; Internal Agency Docket No. FEMA-B-1085]


Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: On February 5, 2010, 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 75 FR 5909. The table provided here represents the 
flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and 
modified elevations, and communities affected for Webster County, 
Kentucky, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the 
following flooding sources: Bailey Ditch (backwater effects from Green 
River), Deer Creek (backwater effects from Green River), East Fork Deer 
Creek Tributary 1 (backwater effects from Green River), Green River, 
Green River Tributary 219 (backwater effects from Green River), Groves 
Creek (backwater effects from Green River), Knoblick Creek (backwater 
effects from Green River), Mock Roy Creek (backwater effects from Green 
River), and Pitman Creek (backwater effects from Green River).

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before March 11, 2013.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-
1085, 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 
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.

Corrections

    In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 5909, in the February 5, 
2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the 
authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled ``Webster County, 
Kentucky, and Incorporated Areas'' addressed the following flooding 
sources: Bailey Ditch (backwater effects from Green River), Deer Creek 
(backwater effects from Green River), East Fork Deer Creek Tributary 1 
(backwater effects from Green River), Green River, Green River

[[Page 73399]]

Tributary 219 (backwater effects from Green River), Groves Creek 
(backwater effects from Green River), Knoblick Creek (backwater effects 
from Green River), Mock Roy Creek (backwater effects from Green River), 
and Pitman Creek (backwater effects from Green River). That table 
contained inaccurate information as to the communities affected for the 
flooding sources Green River and Mock Roy Creek (backwater effects from 
Green River). 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.
