DOHERTY CALLS FOR FLOOD REPORT FOR FINN VALLEY

first_imgSinn Féin Councillor Gary Doherty has today called on Donegal County Council and the Office of Public Works to immediately carry out a flood risk assessment of the Finn Valley.Flooding in the Finn ValleyThe call comes in the wake of the significant flooding which occurred in the area over the last two days.Cllr Doherty said “After the heavy snowfall on Tuesday and Wednesday and then the onslaught of Storm Rachel, we were faced with a torrent of flood water throughout the Finn Valley and indeed the County as a whole. This caused serious problems on our roads and in the river network of streams and burns which run adjacent to residential homes. “In Castlefin last night the bridge crossing the River Finn was flooded and had to be closed to traffic causing significant delays. We also had flooding in the N15 National Primary road leading into and in the town itself, as well as on the Hollow Road and in the Twin Towns area.“I am also aware of one family who were unable to reach their home because the access road was flooded, so they had to take refuge with a neighbour for the night. Other homes in the area were at a serious risk of being flooded as burns and streams burst their banks.”He called on Donegal County Council and the Office of Public Works to carry out a flood risk assessment of the Finn Valley as a matter of urgency.“I am fully aware that in the short term it is difficult to prevent the flooding we have seen over the last two days, but a long term solution must be found before we have a serious injury or a home destroyed by flood water. It is imperative that we look at solutions such as improving flood banks and the overflowing tributaries sooner rather than later when it may be too late. “ DOHERTY CALLS FOR FLOOD REPORT FOR FINN VALLEY was last modified: January 16th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLLR GARY DOHERTYfinn valleyfloodslast_img read more
