16.52.100   Disclaimer of liability.
   The degree of flood protection required by this chapter is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based on scientific and engineering considerations. Larger floods than those upon which these regulations are based can and will occur on rare occasions. Flood heights may be increased by manmade or natural causes. This chapter 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 chapter shall not create liability on the part of the city, any officer or employee thereof, the State of California, or the Federal Insurance Administration of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, for any flood damages that result from reliance on this chapter or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder. All persons performing any construction within the city should and are advised to determine to their own satisfaction the level of flood protection in addition to that required by this chapter necessary or desirable to insure protection of their property.
