Written answers (Question to Public)

Expenditure by the Office of Public Works in the period 2002 - 2013 on flood Capital Works schemes, which amounts to approximately €290 million, is shown by county on the attached table. This expenditure covers major Flood Relief Schemes and also the Minor Flood Mitigation Works and Coastal Protection Scheme which commenced in 2009 and under which Local Authorities are funded by the OPW to carry out small scale flood relief works in their administrative areas. In addition, the OPW has spent approximately €50 million on other programmes, related to flood risk management, principally the Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management Programme of studies, that is not attributable to a specific county. Local Authorities may have undertaken flood defence works from their own resources that the OPW would not have been made aware of.
