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)Luis.Rodriguez3@fema.dhs.gov.
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 theFlood 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 76 FR 56724, in the September 14, 2011, issue of theFederal Register, FEMA published a table under the authority of 44 CFR 67.4. The table, entitled “Rockland County, New York (All Jurisdictions)” addressed the following flooding sources: Demarest Kill, East Branch Hackensack River, Golf Course Brook, Hackensack River, Minisceongo Creek, Nauraushaun Brook, North Branch Pascack Brook, Pascack Brook, Sparkill Creek, West Branch Hackensack River, and West Branch Saddle River. That table did not include the flooding source Hudson River. 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.
