The River Slaney (Enniscorthy) Flood Relief Scheme is at an advanced stage of planning and design. It is planned to proceed to formal Exhibition as required under the Arterial Drainage Acts (ADA) in Quarter 2. Following this, if the scheme proposals are generally well received, the design will be finalised and all required documentation will be submitted to the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, requesting formal confirmation of the scheme under the ADA.
