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.

In the proposed rule published at 75 FR 62062-62063, in the October 7, 2010, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. That table was amended by the proposed rule correction published at 79 FR 33878-33879, in the June 13, 2014, issue of the Federal Register. In this document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information, to address previous inaccuracies. The information provided below should be used in lieu of that previously published.

Correction

This proposed rule provides corrections to the table as amended by the proposed rule correction, to be used in lieu of the information previously published. Correct the Clay County, Arkansas table as follows.
