The proposed BFEs and proposed modified BFEs were also published in the Federal Register.

This final rule is issued in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR part 67.

The BFEs and modified BFEs are made final in the communities listed below. Elevations at selected locations in each community are shown.
