Written answers (Question to Minister for Expenditure)

I am advised that the River Naniken is conveyed by way of a culvert for a substantial part of its entire length and forms an integral part of the urban storm drainage system. Therefore, the responsibility for addressing flooding problems at the location in question rests with Dublin City Council not with the Office of Public Works.
