Cllr Brian Dennehy
Flooding in Rogerstown, Rush
COMHAIRLE CONTAE FHINE GALL
FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL
BALBRIGGAN/RUSH-LUSK/SWORDS AREA COMMITTEE
[Services A – Operational Matters]
Thursday 13th February, 2020
ITEM NO. 70
Question: Councillor B. Dennehy
"That the Chief Executive report to this Committee on what remedial
works have been carried out and are proposed to be carried out to repair
and prevent further flooding in Rogerstown, Rush where manholes and
the surrounding tarmacadam have been lifted up off the road due to
flooding at various times over the last two years.”
As this location is at sea level there is an ongoing risk of flooding when
heavy rainfall coincides with tidal action.
The covers that have lifted during heavy rainfall are foul water covers.
The remit for the maintenance of water and drainage infrastructure is
now the responsibility of Irish Water. Councillors wishing to receive
