Four towns in Donegal will see surveyors visiting this week to collect data for the development of Flood Relief Schemes.
Preliminary ecological surveys will take place to gather baseline data are required to inform scheme design and appraisal of flood defence options in Burnfoot, Castlefinn, Na Dúnaibh and Glenties.
RPS Consulting Engineers have been appointed to carry out the environmental assessments in these towns and they will begin baseline surveys on Tuesday 8th September 2020. The initial surveys will take approximately two weeks. Further surveys will be conducted over the coming months.
Donegal County Council has obtained necessary health and safety statements from RPS demonstrating their safety protocols and procedures, particularly in relation to Covid 19. The survey teams may require access to private lands to complete habitat and biodiversity assessments.
