  • Title: National Flood Policy | cfram.ie
    Descriptive info: Historically, flood risk management focused on land drainage for the benefit of agricultural improvement.. With increasing urbanisation, the.. Arterial Drainage Act, 1945,.. was.. amended in 1995.. to permit the OPW to implement localised flood relief schemes to provide flood protection for cities, towns and villages.. In line with changing national and international paradigms on how to manage flood risk most effectively and efficiently, a review of national flood policy was undertaken in 2003-2004.. The review was undertaken by an Inter-Departmental Review Group, lead by the Minister of State at the Dept.. of Finance with special responsibility for the Office Public Works (OPW).. The Review Group prepared a.. report.. that was put to  ...   different bodies with responsibilities for managing flood risk, and to set a new policy for flood risk management in Ireland into the future.. The adopted policy was accompanied by many specific recommendations, including:.. Focus on managing flood risk, rather than relying only flood protection measures aimed at reducing flooding.. Taking a catchment-based approach to assess and manage risks within the whole-catchment context.. Being proactive in assessing and managing flood risks, including the preparation of flood maps and flood risk management plans.. These recommendations lead to the development and implementation of the.. National CFRAM Programme.. Document Downloads.. Report of the Flood Policy Review Group.. Arterial Drainage Act, 1945..

  • Title: EU Floods Directive | cfram.ie
    Descriptive info: The EU Directive on the assessment and management of flood risks [2007/60/EC], often referred to as the ‘Floods’ Directive, came into force late in 2007.. It is a framework directive that requires Member States to follow a certain process, namely:.. Undertake a Preliminary Flood Risk Assessment.. (PFRA).. by 22 December 2011, to identify areas of existing or foreseeable future potentially significant flood risk (referred to as ‘Areas for Further Assessment, or ‘AFA’s).. Prepare flood hazard and risk maps for the AFAs by 22 December 2013, and,.. Prepare flood risk management plans by 22 December 2015, setting objectives for managing the flood risk within the AFAs and setting out a prioritised set of measures for achieving those objectives.. The Directive requires that the PFRA, flood maps and flood risk management plans are prepared in cooperation and coordination with neighbouring states in cross-border river basins, and with the implementation of the Water Framework Directive.. The Directive also requires that the PFRA and flood maps are published, and that public and stakeholder consultation and engagement is undertaken in the preparation of the flood risk management plans.. The ‘Floods’ Directive was transposed into Irish law by the EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES (ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF FLOOD RISKS) REGULATIONS 2010.. (SI 122/2010).. The Regulations set  ...   either Units of Management or International River Basin Districts (IRBDs).. There are three IRBDs in Ireland:.. The Shannon IRBD.. The North West IRBD.. The Neagh-Bann IRBD.. While the OPW is the national competent authority for the implementation of the Directive in the Republic of Ireland, the.. Rivers Agency.. (Dept.. of Agriculture and Rural Development) is undertaking a similar role in the North.. To ensure that a coordinated approach is adopted for the IRBDs, and building upon a long-standing history of cooperation between the two organisations, working groups on the implementation of the Directive have been established between the OPW and the Rivers Agency.. These groups have taken into account the catchment areas, their flood history, typography and the significant flood risk areas within them, in order to assign and plan work between the two jurisdictions.. It has been decided that Rivers Agency and the Office of Public Works will undertake the necessary work separately within their own jurisdictions but will closely coordinate on all technical matters and proposed measures.. However, for all three IRBDs, it is intended that the OPW and Rivers Agency will combine their work to produce single, joint flood risk management plans for each IRBD.. Document Links..

  • Title: Progress Update – Surveying | cfram.ie
    Descriptive info: May 14, 2012.. In order to deliver the CFRAM Studies, survey work will be undertaken to provide cross- and long-section information (x, y, z spatial coordinates) on river channels and banks, on-line channel structures (bridges, weirs, sluices, etc.. ) and flood defences (walls, embankments, etc.. ).. This information is necessary primarily for the development of hydraulic models of the river systems, which will in turn provide essential information for the assessment of flood levels, flood extents, hazards and risks, and the development of measures to manage such risks.. The OPW is currently commissioning a number of survey contractors to undertake this work; the surveyors will be working in various locations countrywide during 2012.. Please refer to the individual CFRAM Study websites for further information on surveying your area.. The surveyors will be working on both large and smaller watercourses, which will be surveyed in slightly different ways to reflect the size of the watercourse.. If surveyors require entry onto private land for the purpose of carrying out their work they will seek to give prior notice to landowners prior to entry.. Surveyors will carry ID and will provide a letter of introduction  ...   insurance cover in place and no liability will be passed on to landowners.. Larger watercourse channel bed survey will be undertaken by boat (a small vessel with a hull mounted echo-sounder).. The boat will record the required cross section profiles as it motors slowly along the watercourse.. The riverbank survey will be then be carried out on foot (no vehicles used), and will generally involve survey teams of two people.. One will set up a tripod with a total station (computerised level device) on top.. The other team member will have a level pole and prism.. This person will walk along the survey line, stopping at 2m intervals to allow the total station to be used to send out a beam which is reflected off the survey pole and can calculate the height of the ground.. On smaller watercourses the river bank survey detailed above will be extended to collect the river bed profile as well.. In this case, the surveyor with the survey pole will be in waders and will walk through the river to collect the required bed heights.. Again, teams of two people will generally carry out this work..

  • Title: CFRAM Studies | cfram.ie
    Descriptive info: Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Studies and their product Flood Risk Management Plans (FRMPs) are at the core of the national policy for flood risk management and the strategy for its implementation.. The aim of the CFRAM Studies is to:.. assess flood risk, through the identification of flood hazard areas and the associated impacts of flooding;.. identify viable structural and non-structural measures and options for managing the flood risks for localised high-risk areas and within the catchment as a whole; and.. prepare a strategic Flood Risk Management Plan (FRMP) and associated Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) that sets out the measures and policies that should be pursued to achieve the  ...   develop a suite of hydraulic computer models.. Flood maps are one of the main outputs of the study and are the way in which the model results are communicated to each of the end users.. Where flood risks are.. significant.. , the studies will identify a range of potential flood risk management options to manage these risks.. The CFRAM Studies will focus on areas where the risk is understood to be most significant.. Each Study will provide for number of key stages:.. Data Collection Surveying.. Flood Risk Review.. Hydrology Analysis.. Detailed Hydraulic Modelling.. Flooding Mapping.. Development of Flood Risk Management (FRM) options.. Strategic Environmental Assessment Appropriate Assessment.. Catchment Flood Risk Management Plan..
