Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations
FEMA is correcting a table for Carroll County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas.
Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations; Correction
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes determinations of Base (1% annualchance) 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 are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.
FEMA is correcting a table in a proposed rule which published on September 8, 2009, at 74 FR 46047. The table for Carroll County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas contained incorrect information for the flooding source ``Leatherwood Creek.''
The September 8, 2009, proposed rule contained a table entitled
``Carroll County, Arkansas, and Incorporated Areas,'' which contained
errors. For flooding source ``Leatherwood Creek,'' the table contained
inaccurate information as to the communities affected. FEMA is now
publishing a revised table for Carroll County, Arkansas, and
Incorporated Areas, containing the accurate information, to address
these prior errors. The information provided in the table below should
be used in lieu of the table published on September 8, 2009. [[Page 5930]]
* Elevation in feet (NGVD) + Elevation in feet (NAVD)
* National Geodetic Vertical Datum.
+ North American Vertical Datum.
[caret] Mean Sea Level, rounded to the nearest 0.1 meter.
** BFEs to be changed include the listed downstream and upstream BFEs, and include BFEs located on the stream reach between the referenced locations above. Please refer to the revised Flood Insurance Rate Map located at the community map repository (see below) for exact locations of all BFEs to be changed. Send comments to Kevin C. Long, Acting Chief, Engineering Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472. ADDRESSES City of Eureka Springs
