Mott MacDonald appointed to manage flood risk in Ireland

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Ireland’s Office of Public Works to help manage flood risk for the South Western River Basin District, stretching from Dingle in County Kerry to Dungarvan in County Waterford and including neighbouring counties of Cork, Limerick and Tipperary.

As part of the Irish government’s medium to long-term strategy, Mott MacDonald will undertake the catchment flood risk assessment and management (CFRAM) programme in the South Western River Basin District. This will include hydraulic modelling, detailed flood risk mapping and will be used to develop flood risk management options. The consultancy will also carry out strategic environmental impact assessments and the public consultations.

Project director Fintan McGivern said: “Mott MacDonald has completed a number of flood risk assessments and flood alleviation projects in Ireland, in areas such as Kilkenny, Clonmel and Carrick on Suir. The CFRAM project is a continuation of our work in this sector and will be an important contribution to the Irish government’s obligations under the EU Floods Directive and will also inform town planners of the level of flood risk present in the relevant towns and cities.”

The consultancy’s commission is due to be completed by the end of 2015.
