The Clonakilty Flood Relief Scheme is designed to protect the town of Clonakilty from fluvial flooding from the Ballyhalwick River, the River Fealge, the Cappeen Stream and the Garage Stream along with tidal flooding from Clonakilty Bay.
The works are comprised of two main elements which include a flood storage area upstream of the town to protect against fluvial flooding and new flood defence walls from Emmet Square to the Croppy Road to protect against tidal flooding.
The Scheme is currently under construction. Ward and Burke Construction Ltd were appointed to carry out the Scheme Works on 23 February 2018.
