(A) The degree of flood protection provided by this chapter is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based on engineering and scientific methods of study. Nonetheless, greater floods may occur on occasion and flood heights may be increased by man-made or natural causes.
(B) This chapter does not imply that areas outside floodplain areas or that land uses permitted within those areas will always be totally free from flooding or flood damages. This chapter shall not create any liability on the part of or a cause of action against the County Board or any officer or employee thereof, or the Federal Emergency Management Agency, for any flood damages that may result from reliance on this chapter or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder.
