      (2)   The BFE used in determining the regulatory flood protection elevation shall be determined based on the following criteria.
         (a)   When Base Flood Elevation (BFE) data is available from other sources, all new construction and substantial improvements within the areas shall also comply with all applicable provisions of this chapter and shall be elevated or floodproofed in accordance with standards in §§ 151.55 and 151.56.

         (d)   When Base Flood Elevation (BFE) data is not available from a federal, state, or other source as outlined above, the reference level shall be elevated or floodproofed (nonresidential) to or above the Regulatory Flood Protection Elevation, as defined in § 151.05.  All other applicable provisions of § 151.56 shall also apply.
