CHANGES ARE MADE IN DETERMINATIONS OF BASE FLOOD ELEVATIONS FOR THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO, SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA,
UNDER THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM
On June 19, 1997, the Federal Emergency Management Agency identified Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in the City of San Diego, San Diego County, California, through issuance of a Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration has determined that modification of the elevations of the flood having a 1-percent chance of being equaled or exceeded in any given year (base flood) for certain locations in this community is appropriate. The modified Base Flood Elevations (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.
A hydraulic analysis was performed to incorporate updated topographic information, new hydrology, and the effects of placement of fill in the floodplain at the Santaluz Northeast Affordable Housing Site and construction of culverts at Rancho Bernardo Road and Four Gee Road along an unnamed tributary to the San Dieguito River. This has resulted in the establishment of a regulatory floodway and BFEs, decreases in SFHA width, and a change in flood zone designation for the unnamed tributary. The table below indicates existing and modified BFEs for selected locations along the affected lengths of the flooding source(s) cited above.
Existing BFE Modified BFE
________Location_____ (feet)*__________(feet)* _

Just downstream of Four Gee Road None 490
Just downstream of Rancho Bernardo Road None 500
*National Geodetic Vertical Datum, rounded to nearest whole foot
Under the above-mentioned Acts of 1968 and 1973, the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration 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 Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration 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 Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration?s determination to modify the BFEs may itself be changed.
Any person having knowledge or wishing to comment on these changes should immediately notify:
The Honorable Richard M. Murphy
Mayor, City of San Diego
202 C Street, 11th Floor
San Diego, CA 92101
PUB. August 14, 21-c503373
