Statutory Public Consultation on Draft Flood Maps

The Office of Public Works (OPW) has developed draft flood maps under the national CFRAM (Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management) Programme and, with its partners, through other projects to provide a general overview of the flood risk in the future across Ireland from rivers and extreme sea levels. The OPW and Dublin City Council have also developed draft flood maps for pluvial flooding for certain areas. The main purposes of these draft maps are to increase awareness among the general public, local authorities and other organisations, of the likelihood of flooding and to inform flood risk management plans being prepared by the Government to prevent and reduce the risk and impact from future flooding.
