Minister O’Donovan announces the appointment of consultant engineers for Cavan Town Flood Relief Scheme
Cavan County Council as the Lead Authority, in partnership with The Office of Public Works (OPW) are now advancing with the Cavan Town Flood Relief Scheme.
The OPW has recommended the development of a Flood Relief Scheme for Cavan Town as a result of the work completed in the Erne River Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Study.
This Flood Relief Scheme is part of the €1bn National Fund announced by the Government for Flood Relief Schemes throughout the country in May 2018.
Cavan County Council have commissioned ByrneLooby to develop and implement the Flood Relief Scheme for Cavan Town. The objective of the scheme is to alleviate the risk of flooding in the Cavan Town area by providing a scheme that is technically, socially, environmentally, and economically acceptable.
A scheme website has been developed at https://www.floodinfo.ie/frs/en/cavan-town/home/. The site is intended to be a resource for the public, providing information and the latest project developments and will be updated as the scheme progresses.
