The Office of Public Works and its partners, Cork City Council and Cork County Council, have undertaken a catchment-based flood risk assessment and management study of the Lee Catchment (River Lee, its tributaries and Cork Harbour) – the Lee Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Study. The Lee CFRAM Study is now complete and all public consultation on the Draft Deliverables for the Study has now closed. The main outputs from this study are flood maps (available at Flood Maps) and a Catchment Flood Risk Management Plan (available in Reports) which identifies a programme of prioritised studies, actions and works to manage the significant flood risks in the Lee Catchment, both now and into the future, informed by a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Habitats Directive Appropriate Assessment (AA) that identify the environmental effects of the Plan.

The Lee CFRAM Study is the primary pilot project for a new national approach to flood risk management under the National CFRAM Programme. Further information on this programme is available at www.floodinfo.ie.
