Rye Water Kilcock Flood Management Works


Water & Environment



McGarrell Reilly Homes Ltd.

DBFL Consulting Engineers, in conjunction with HR Wallingford UK, carried out a detailed Flood Impact Assessment for a 60 acre development site adjacent to the Rye Water River in Kilcock, Co. Meath.  Works included the detailed modelling of the river channel to ascertain existing peak flood levels, quantify existing floodplain storage volumes etc.


Proposals agreed with both the OPW and ERFB included the optimisation of the existing floodplain bounding the site and the diversion of the existing river, in part, to enable access via a new distributor road.  A key element of the study / works was to ensure no detrimental effect on existing lands upstream or downstream of the subject site in terms of flood impact.
