AGENCY:

Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION:

Proposed rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

On January 16, 2008, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) published in the Federal Register a proposed rule that included modified Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) for the locations at the intersection with IH 440 and at the confluence with Palarm Creek along the Arkansas River in Pulaski County, Arkansas. FEMA is no longer proposing these flood elevation determination changes along the Start Printed Page 23927Arkansas River as identified in the above-referenced rulemaking publication.

DATES:

Comments pertaining to the Arkansas River BFEs for the locations at the intersection with IH 440 and at the confluence with Palarm Creek are to be submitted on or before May 29, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FEMA publishes proposed determinations of 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 73 FR 2860, in the January 16, 2008, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled “Pulaski County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas”, listed locations of proposed modified flood elevation determinations for several flooding sources, including the Arkansas River. The proposed modifications listed for the Arkansas River should be removed from the table. FEMA is no longer proposing any flood elevation determination changes along the Arkansas River as identified in the above-referenced rulemaking publication.
