Public Information Days Lee Catchment Flood Risk Management Plan

Are you at risk of flooding?

Have your say on a range of potential flood risk management options for the Lee catchment.

The OPW, and its partners Cork City Council and Cork County Council, invite you to a series of public information days to inform you of the identified flood risks in the Lee catchment and to hear your views on a range of potential flood risk management options.

Flood maps showing areas at risk of flooding from rivers in the Lee catchment as well as from tidal flooding from Cork Harbour have now been prepared. Where the risk of flooding is significant, a range of potential options have been identified to manage this flood risk.Public Information Days will be held at four locations throughout the Lee Catchment between the 6th and 11th May, when members of the project team will be available for questions and to discuss the work done on the Study.
