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