The degree of flood protection required by this Code is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based on scientific and engineering considerations. Larger floods can and will occur on rare occasions. Flood heights may be increased by man-made or natural causes. This Code does not imply that land outside the areas of special flood hazards or uses permitted within such areas will be free from flooding or flood damages. This Code shall not create liability on the part of the City, any officer or employee thereof, or the Federal Emergency Agency, for any flood damages that result from reliance on this Code or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder.
