CHANGES ARE MADE

IN DETERMINATIONS

OF BASE FLOOD

ELEVATIONS FOR

THE UNINCORPORATED AREAS OF GWINNETT COUNTY, GEORGIA,

UNDER THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE

PROGRAM

On September 29, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency identified Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in the unincorporated areas of Gwinnett County, Georgia, through issuance of a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM).

The Mitigation Division has determined that establishment of the Base (1-percent annual chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) for certain locations in this community are appropriate. The established BFEs revise the FIRM for the community.

The changes are being made pursuant to Section 206 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 (Public Law 93-234) and are in accordance with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended (Title XIII of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1968, Public Law 90-448), 42 U.S.C. 4001-4128, and 44 CFR Part 65.

Hydrologic and Hydraulic analyses were performed to incorporate updated topographic information and construction of two culverts along Bay Creek Tributary No. 2. These analyses have resulted in increases and decreases in SFHA width, and establishment of regulatory floodway and BFEs for Bay Creek Tributary No.2 from approximately 1,800 feet downstream of Ozora Road to approximately 400 feet upstream. The table below indicates existing and modified BFEs for selected locations along the affected lengths of the flooding source(s) cited above.

Location;

Approximately 1,800 feet downstream of Ozora Road; Existing BFE(feet)*; *None; Modified BFE(feet); 1002

Location;

Approximately 400 feet upstream of Ozora Road; Existing BFE(feet)*; None; Modified BFE(feet); 1020

*North American Vertical Datum, rounded to nearest whole foot

Under the above-mentioned Acts of 1968 and 1973, the Mitigation Division must develop criteria for floodplain management. To participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the community must use the modified BFEs to administer the floodplain management measures of the NFIP. These modified BFEs will also be used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and their contents and for the second layer of insurance on existing buildings and contents.

Upon the second publication of notice of these changes in this newspaper, any person has 90 days in which he or she can request, through the Chief Executive Officer of the community, that the Mitigation Division reconsider the determination. Any request for reconsideration must be based on knowledge of changed conditions or new scientific or technical data. All interested parties are on notice that until the 90-day period elapses, the Mitigation Division's determination to modify the BFEs may itself be changed.

Any person having knowledge or wishing to comment on these changes should immediately notify:

Chairman, Gwinnett County
