The Site Investigation (SI) works are now nearing completion, with only a couple more investigation pits to be dug. We'd like to thank all the landowners for accommodating our contractors and allowing this stage of work to progress.
We have also been testing a wide range of measures in the computer model of the river we have built, including looking at the benefits of dredging, changes to the maintenance regime, walls and embankments and upstream storage to name a few.
We have narrowed the list of possible measures to a number of combinations which are being further refined and will be presented in a public engagement event which is being planned for next month. We will give you more information on this event, which will be held virtually, in the coming weeks, but we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the work we have carried out and how you see flooding being managed within Mountmellick.
