Proposed Base Flood Elevation Determinations for 
Carbon County, Utah and Incorporated Areas

 The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management
Agency has issued a preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and Flood
Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) reflecting new or modified Base (1% annual
chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) within the unincorporated areas of
Carbon County.  Technical information or comments are solicited on the
proposed and proposed modified BFEs shown on the preliminary FIS and
FIRM for the unincorporated areas of Carbon County.  These BFEs and
modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management measures
that your community is required to either adopt or show evidence of
being already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for
participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.  However,
before the BFEs or modified BFEs are effective for floodplain
management purposes, you will be provided an opportunity to appeal the
proposed elevations.  For information on the statutory 90-day period
provided for appeals, as well as a detailed listing of the proposed
and proposed modified BFEs and the addresses where copies of the FIRM
are available for review, please visit our website at, or call the FEMA Map
Information eXchange (FMIX) toll free at 1-877-FEMA MAP
Published in the Sun Advocate March 15 and 22, 2011.
