The River Dargle Flood Defense Scheme was officially opened earlier this month by Mr Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform with special responsibility for the Office of Public Works and Flood Relief.

This project was one of the key capital investment projects by Wicklow County Council and the Office of Public Works (OPW) with an investment of €46 million, the Town of Bray said in its latest announcement.

The scheme comprised a variety of flood defenses, including construction of new sections of earth embankments, demolition and rebuilding of river walls with extensive stone facing, channel excavation, regrading and riverbank strengthening.

The flood defences aim to provide protection against a 1-in-100-year fluvial flood and 1-in-200-year tidal flood.
