Two Million Guaranteed For Tipperary Flood Relief Schemes

Independent TD Mr Michael Lowry has today stated that he is delighted to confirm that both Nenagh and Golden in Co. Tipperary, are to be included in the Governments new Flood Management plan; each to be viewed as an individual priority scheme.

The flood relief schemes for both areas have now been sanctioned by Mr. Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran, T.D., Minister of State with responsibility for the Office of Public Works (O.P.W ) and Flood Relief.  Same schemes are scheduled to progress with sufficient funding guaranteed to completed all the necessary works.  Flood Relief Schemes for these areas are estimated to cost €2 million, which is now guaranteed by the O.P.W.

The O.P.W in conjunction with Tipperary Co. Council Engineers, will further examine all available options and solutions before implementing agreed appropriate engineering strategy to avert future flooding events in both these areas.

“While the total costs cannot be determined until a specific design is sanctioned; the estimated combined cost of both schemes of €2 Million is wholly and absolutely guaranteed”, stated Deputy Lowry.
