The Environmental Scoping Report for the Lee Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management Study

The Environmental Scoping Report for the Lee Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management Study (CFRAMS) is now available to download from our project website www.leecframs.ie. This report documents the outputs from the first stages of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process.

 

This report describes the environmental characteristics of the Lee Catchment; presents our initial understanding of the key environmental issues within the catchment relating to flooding and its management; and identifies a set of proposed environmental objectives for the study. This report is a statement of our understanding of the catchment at the present time. This will develop as the project progresses and will be informed by the views and knowledge of external stakeholders and the general public.

 

Comments are invited on the scope and content of this report until 8 June 2007 and can be sent: via the feedback form on this website; by email to our project email address leecframstudy@opw.ie; or by post to the following address:
