ACTION:

Proposed rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

On June 3, 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 31342. The table provided here represents the flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and modified elevations, and communities affected for Tazewell County, Illinois, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the flooding sources Bull Run Creek, Dempsey Creek, Farm Creek, Fond Du Lac Creek, Illinois River, Lick Creek, Mackinaw River, Prairie Creek, and School Creek.

DATES:

Comments are to be submitted on or before October 20, 2011.

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.

Correction

In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 31342, in the June 3, 2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled “Tazewell County, Illinois, and Incorporated Start Printed Page 43967Areas” addressed the flooding sources Bull Run Creek, Dempsey Creek, Farm Creek, Fond Du Lac Creek, Illinois River, Lick Creek, Mackinaw River, Prairie Creek, and School Creek. That table contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, and/or communities affected for those 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.
