Proposed rule; correction.
On May 25, 2010 and October 6, 2011, FEMA published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that contained an erroneous table. This notice provides corrections to those tables, to be used in lieu of the information previously published. The table provided here represents the flooding sources, location of referenced elevations, effective and modified elevations, and communities affected for Iron County, Utah, and Incorporated Areas. Specifically, it addresses the following flooding sources: Coal Creek, Coal Creek Overflow, Coal Creek to Fiddlers Split, Cross Hollow, Greens Lake, North Airport Canal, Old Quichapa Creek Lower, Old Quichapa Creek Upper, Parowan Creek, Quichapa Channel, Quichapa West, Red Creek, Shurtz Creek, Shurtz Creek Shallow, Squaw Creek and Water Canyon.
Comments are to be submitted on or before March 13, 2013.
You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA-B-1100 and FEMA-B-1222, 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) firstname.lastname@example.org.
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) email@example.com.
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.
In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 29238 and 76 FR 62006, in the May 25, 2010 and October 6, 2011, issues of the Federal Register, respectively, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The tables, entitled “Iron County, Utah, and Incorporated Areas” addressed the following flooding sources: Coal Creek, Coal Creek Overflow, Coal Creek to Fiddlers Split, Cross Hollow, Greens Lake, North Airport Canal, Old Quichapa Creek Lower, Old Quichapa Creek Upper, Parowan Creek, Quichapa Channel, Quichapa West, Red Creek, Shurtz Creek, Shurtz Creek Shallow, Squaw Creek and Water Canyon. The tables contained inaccurate information as to the location of referenced elevation, effective and modified elevation in feet, and/or communities affected for that flooding source. In this notice, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information, to address these errors. The information provided below should be used in lieu of that previously published in both tables.
