The degree of flood protection required by the provisions of this Chapter 151 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. These provisions do not imply that land outside the areas of special flood hazard or uses permitted within such areas will be free from flooding or flood damage. These provisions shall not create liability on the part of the city, any officer or employee thereof, or the Federal Emergency Management Agency, for any flood damage that results from reliance on these provisions or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder.
