River Dargle Flood Defence Scheme News

The River Dargle Flood Defence Scheme was been completed in October 2017. This is a very important piece of infrastructure which aims to protect our town and its people.

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

A range of landscape treatments in and adjacent to the river are to mitigate the impacts of the scheme on the local environment along the river corridor.

Read more information about the scheme by accessing our dedicated Our Town Our River page just visit www.bray.ie/town-river/.
