Rivers Agency updates residents on post flood investigations

Tuesday, 6 October 2009

DARD Rivers Agency officials along with public representatives have engaged in a series of meetings with communities in Antrim affected by the flooding in August 2008.

The aim is to advise residents of the outcome of post flood investigations and detail how recommendations contained within the reports will be taken forward by the relevant authorities.

Meetings have taken place in Meadowside and Riverside in Antrim and in Muckamore. Further briefing of other communities affected across the north will take place as the outcome of our investigations become available.

Residents and their representatives have been provided with non technical summaries of available reports. Summaries and the full reports can be viewed on the Rivers Agency website www.riversagencyni.gov.uk. Alternatively a hard copy may be requested by contacting Rivers Agency Headquarters, 4 Hospital Road, Belfast, BT8 8JP, Telephone number 0845 3044505.
