Proposed rule; correction.
On November 5, 2008, 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 73 FR 65816 through 65817. The table provided here represents the flooding source, location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation, and communities affected for St. Joseph County, Michigan (All Jurisdictions).Start Further Info
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
William R. Blanton, Jr., Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-3151 or (e-mail) firstname.lastname@example.org.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental 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 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 proposed elevations 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 these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.
In the proposed rule published at 73 FR 65816 through 65817, in the November 5, 2008 issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled “St. Joseph County, Michigan and Incorporated Areas” addressed flooding sources countywide. That table contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, or communities affected for these 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 notice.
