The City of Cypress makes these documents available on an "as is" basis. All warranties and representations of any kind with regard to said documents are disclaimed, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular use. Under no circumstances will the City of Cypress, or any of its officers or employees be liable for any consequential, incidental, special or exemplary damages even if apprised of the likelihood of such damages occurring. The City of Cypress does not warrant the documents against deficiencies of any kind. The use of any of these documents for work which is under contract with the City of Cypress, does not relieve the contractor from any obligations assumed by the contract, or from complete and proper fulfillment of the terms of the contract, nor does it entitle the contractor to compensation for damages or loss which could be attributed to such use. Since revisions or additions to the design file drawings may occur at any time, the Receiver agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the City of Cypress, its officers, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, suits, losses, damages or costs, including reasonable attorney's fees, arising from the use of outdated design file drawings, and such indemnification shall survive acceptance of said file(s) by receiver.


For any engineer using our design standards, it is the responsibility of the design engineer to ensure compliance with City Standards when submitting projects for review and approval. In addition, it is the responsibility of the design engineer to obtain and verify the revised Standard Details once updated. Although the City of Cypress provides these details and associated drawings, they must be used under the supervision of a professional engineer accepting the responsibility and liability for their use. The details are intended to assist, but not substitute, for competent work by design professionals. It remains the responsibility of the design consultant to ensure that the details to be used are appropriate for the intended use.
