12-1-4: GENERAL PROVISIONS:
   A.   Applicable Lands: This chapter shall apply to all special flood hazard areas within the jurisdiction of South Weber City.
   B.   Basis For Establishing Special Flood Hazard Areas: The special flood hazard areas identified by the federal emergency management agency in a scientific and engineering report entitled "The Flood Insurance Study For The City Of South Weber", dated June 18, 2007, with an accompanying flood insurance rate map (FIRM), is hereby adopted by reference and declared to be a part of this chapter. The flood insurance study and FIRM are available for inspection at the city offices, 1600 East South Weber Drive, South Weber, UT 84405.
   C.   Compliance: No structure or land shall hereafter be constructed, located, extended, converted, or altered unless the modification fully complies with the terms of this chapter and other applicable regulations.
   D.   Abrogation And Greater Restrictions: This chapter is not intended to repeal, abrogate, or impair any existing easements, covenants, or deed restrictions. However, where this chapter and another ordinance, easement, covenant, or deed restriction conflict or overlap, whichever imposes the more stringent restrictions shall prevail.
   E.   Interpretation: In the interpretation and application of this chapter, all provisions shall be:
      1.   Considered as minimum requirements;
      2.   Liberally construed in favor of the governing body; and
      3.   Deemed neither to limit nor repeal any other powers granted under state statutes.
   F.   Warning And 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 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 special flood hazard areas or uses permitted within such areas will be free from flooding or flood damages. This chapter shall not create liability on the part of South Weber City or any officer or employee thereof, or the federal emergency management agency for any flood damages that result in reliance on this chapter or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder.
