Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

Comments are requested on the proposed Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed BFE modifications for the following communities: the City of St. Louis, St. Charles and St. Louis counties in Missouri; and Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair counties in Illinois. The communities addressed by this rule were the subject of an act of Congress which required the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to delay the statutory appeals process required under Section 1363 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, until certain publication requirements were met for each of these communities.

The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the proposed regulatory flood elevations for the reach described by the downstream and upstream locations in the table below. The BFEs and modified BFEs are a part of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, these elevations, once finalized, will be used by insurance agents, and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents in those buildings.

DATES:

Comments are to be submitted on or before October 6, 2009.

ADDRESSES:

The corresponding preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the proposed BFEs for each community are available for inspection at the community's map repository. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-1062, to 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) bill.blanton@dhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes and seeks comment on the Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for each community listed below, in accordance with section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).

Those communities affected by this proposed rule are the City of St. Louis, St. Charles and St. Louis counties in Missouri; and Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair counties in Illinois. The communities addressed by this rule were the subject of an act of Congress which required the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to delay the statutory appeals process required under 1363 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, until certain publication requirements were met for each of the included communities. Specifically, the legislation stated, “Until such time as preliminary flood insurance rate maps initiated prior to October 1, 2008 are completed and released for public review, preliminary base flood elevations are published in the Federal Register, and the second required local newspaper publication of such base flood elevations is made for the City of St. Louis, St. Charles and St. Louis counties in Missouri, and Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair counties in Illinois, the Administration shall not begin the statutory appeals process in such areas required under 1383 of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968.” (Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act 2009, Pub. L. 110-329, Div. B, Sec. 10503, 122. Stat. 3574, 3593 (2008)). In accordance with the intent of the legislation, FEMA intends to initiate concurrent appeal periods for these Missouri and Illinois communities.

FEMA originally published BFEs for the affected Illinois communities in proposed rules in 2008. The proposed BFEs for Monroe and Madison counties published August 18, 2008, at 73 FR 48170. The proposed BFEs for St. Clair County published September 3, 2008, at 73 FR 51400. The proposed BFEs for Monroe, Madison, and St. Clair counties which published at 73 FR 48170 and 73 FR 51400 are withdrawn and replaced by the proposed BFEs set forth below in this rule. FEMA received no comments on the proposed rules published at 73 FR 48170 and 73 FR 51400. Only one minor change has been made in the proposed BFEs for these Illinois counties since the 2008 publications. In proposed rule 73 FR 48170 for Madison County, the existing BFE for the Mississippi River was listed as 403 feet using the North American Vertical Datum (NAVD). This was a typographical error and has been modified to reflect the correct existing BFE of 430 feet NAVD. This rule is the first publication of proposed BFEs for the affected Missouri counties.

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 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.

Comments on any aspect of the Flood Insurance Study and FIRM, other than the proposed BFEs, will be considered. A letter acknowledging receipt of any comments will not be sent.

National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental Consideration. An environmental Start Printed Page 32481impact assessment has not been prepared.

Regulatory Flexibility Act. As flood elevation determinations are not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.

Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review. This proposed rule is not a significant regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, as amended.

Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This proposed rule involves no policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.

Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This proposed rule meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
