Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Scoping Report [Consultation Draft]

As part of the Shannon CFRAM Study SEA, an SEA Scoping Report has been undertaken to identify the environmental characteristics of the Shannon River Basin District. The SEA Scoping Report has been produced to present the initial understanding of the key environmental issues relating to flood risk and its management. The SEA Scoping Report has been made available for review and comments are invited on the scope and content of this report by the 17/12/2012. Comments received will be used, where appropriate, to inform the future development of the Study, its Flood Risk Management Plans and associated SEA.

The Shannon CFRAM Study SEA Scoping Report and its associated Annex's can be downloaded below.

UoM 25/26 Flood Forecasting Report

The Flood Forecasting Report for Unit of Management (UoM) 25/26 reviews the current systems in place, and examines the facilities required to operate a real-time localised flood forecasting service for the main River Shannon catchment (UoM 25/26).

Shannon Level Operation Review Report

A River Shannon Level Operation Review has been undertaken to research and understand the current operation of control structures (e.g. weirs and sluices) along the River Shannon, who has responsibilities for water levels and how this impacts flood risk management. The River Shannon Level Operation Report has been produced to understand control structures, stakeholder roles and to identify any quick-win measures to reduce flood risk

The Shannon Level Operation Review Report and its non-technical summary (Understanding Water Levels of the River Shannon) can be downloaded below

Inception Reports

These reports outline the information collected to date and outline the methodology for delivering the Shannon CFRAM study. A separate report is provided for each Unit of Management and there is a focus on the methodology being adopted for the hydrological analysis, which is one of the early project tasks.

Inception reports for each river catchment can be downloaded below.

Flood Risk Review (FRR) Report

The FRR Report sets out the recommendations for AFAs based on the Consultants site visits, but these recommendations form just one of the "strands" that fed into the finalisation of the definitive list. Hence, in some areas, recommendations in the FRR Reports do not necessarily make it into the final list of AFAs reported to the European Commission and being taken forward in the CFRAM Studies.

The FRR Report and appendices are available to download below.
