DONEGAL County Council, in partnership with the Office of Public Works, have appointed a consultant for four flood relief schemes in Donegal.
RPS Consulting Engineers Ltd are to undertake the engineering and environmental consultancy services for schemes in Burnfoot, Castlefinn, Na Dúnaibh and Glenties.
A fifth town, Kerrykeel, will also benefit from a flood relief scheme.
The Kerry scheme will be progressed concurrently by a team of engineers from Donegal County Council and the Office of Public Works.
Once complete, the schemes will offer flood protection for residential and commercial properties in addition to other community facilities and municipal infrastructure.
In addition to these five schemes, tenders for the commission for the engineering and environmental consultancy services for flood relief schemes in the communities of Ballybofey-Stranorlar, Buncrana-Luddan and Ramelton were received earlier this month.
These tenders are now being evaluated and an appointment will be made in the coming months.
