The degree of flood protection sought by the provisions of this code is considered reasonable for regulatory purposes and is based on accepted engineering methods of study. Larger floods may occur or flood heights may be increased by man-made or natural causes, such as ice jams and bridge openings restricted by debris. This code does not imply that areas outside any identified floodplain areas, or that land uses permitted within such areas will be free from flooding or flood damages. This code shall not create liability on the part of the City of Philadelphia or any officer or employee thereof for any flood damages that result from reliance on this code or any administrative decision lawfully made thereunder.

UpCodes note: Section A-103.5 was amended by Bill No. 180175. The bill was approved on June 6, 2018.
