The OPW, on behalf of the Shannon Flood Risk State Agency Co-ordination Working Group, intends to commission a Project in the lower River Shannon and Mulkear catchment in Q4 2021.
The driver for this project is to increase the capacity of the Old River Shannon to help reduce fluvial flooding at lower magnitude events.
Project Objective 1: identify feasible options for the management of sediment and vegetation to prevent further reduction in, and if possible increase, conveyance and/or channel capacity of the Old Shannon between Clareville Water Treatment Plant and St Thomas Island
Project Objective 2: identify opportunities to bring wider benefits to the Project Area, e.g. environmental, water quality, amenity
There’s a very simple solution to keeping the Shannon water levels in check,I had a boat on Shannon sinc 82 , you really need a water management situation, where they can have access to all Weirs 24/7 on call 24/7 to be in touch with current rain fall,my name is Leslie Stewart @0872177557 ,this would take a crew of 4 people to observe rain fall and water management north mid as in Athlone and Meelick you can contact me on that no Leslie Stewart
