Meeting on Thurso Flood Protection Study Next Week
The Highland Council has invited people in Thurso to attend a public exhibition highlighting proposals for flood prevention measures along the River Thurso.
The council is currently developing a Flood Protection Study (FPS) for the river to identify solutions that will alleviate the risk of flooding.
An exhibition on Tuesday, 22 January, from 2pm – 7pm at the Pentland Hotel ballroom, Princess Street, Thurso, will present results of the study to date and outline potential options being considered to mitigate the risk of future flooding in Thurso along the River Thurso.
The public will be able to view what types of measures are currently being considered, their locations and their impacts.
“Staff from The Highland Council’s Flood Risk Management Team and consultants AECOM will be at the exhibition to discuss the measures, answer any questions and gather any initial comments from people to the various proposals at this early stage,” the council said in its release.
