The purpose of the River Dodder Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 3 is to assess and develop a viable, cost effective and sustainable Flood Alleviation Scheme in order to alleviate flooding along the River Dodder between Clonskeagh Road Bridge to Orwell Road Bridge including Little Dargle Stream at Braemor Road-Woodside Drive south-eastern junction.
Dublin City Council have appointed Byrne Looby to undertake the design and implementation of the proposed River Dodder Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 3. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council will be working together with the Office of Public Works and Dublin City Council to deliver the project.
There is a public consultation day organised for 14th January in the Dropping Well Public House from 4pm - 8pm. Our objective is to gather information from the public about their experiences of flooding in the Study Area along with their thoughts on possible solutions to the flooding problem and their preferences in this regard. Local experience, knowledge and insight is an essential pre-requisite for any successful Flood Alleviation Scheme.
We also welcome your input on potential environmental issues within the Study Area, in particular thoughts on constraints with regard to environmental issues and implementation of solutions.
The scheme will be delivered in 5 Stages (see image below)
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Dublin City Council, and the Office of Public Works wishes to consider all viewpoints in relation to the study area being examined. 
This is your opportunity to take part at the early stages of the planning of the River Dodder Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 3. The general public and all interested parties are invited to give their opinions on the study area. Please examine the Study area shown and let your views be known by completing and returning the questionnaire by Friday 31st January 2020.
All comments received in response to this event will be considered by Dublin City Council, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the Office of Public Works and will be taken into account in the preparation of the first stage of the River Dodder Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 3, Engineering Study and Environmental Study. 
The Project website will provide further feedback with regards to progress and developments regarding the River Dodder Flood Alleviation Scheme Phase 3.
