Flood­ing is­sue at Ard­more Park is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated

Bray People - - NEWS -

IN a no­tice of mo­tion, Cllr John Ryan asked the Mu­nic­i­pal Dis­trict to in­ves­ti­gate an on­go­ing flood­ing is­sue at a house in Ard­more Park.

Dis­trict Ad­min­is­tra­tor David Forde said that there is no pub­lic storm sewer sys­tem in Ard­more Park.

The sur­face wa­ter drainage in the vicin­ity of 171 Ard­more Park dis­charges to the waste wa­ter ser­vice pipe at the rear of this and ad­ja­cent prop­er­ties.

This pipe sur­charges foul wa­ter in the gar­den of this prop­erty ev­ery one to two years.

The only rem­edy to the prob­lem is to pro­vide a new storm wa­ter sewer through this prop­erty and into the ex­ist­ing storm sewer in Her­bert Rise at the rear.

This has been dis­cussed with the own­ers but there is a shed ob­struct­ing the route and they are re­luc­tant to al­low ac­cess to carry out the work or to fa­cili- tate fu­ture main­te­nance.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the cost of suf­fi­cient new drainage to ef­fect ad­e­quate storm wa­ter sep­a­ra­tion would be at least €100,000.

Cllr Ryan said that this is an is­sue which needs to be in­ves­ti­gated on a broader level across Bray.

Cllr Pat Vance said that there seems to be a prob­lem with the map­ping of the sewage scheme in Ard­more Park and asked if that could be in­ves­ti­gated.

Cllr Steven Matthews said that mem­bers met with Ir­ish Wa­ter re­cently and brought up the is­sue of sep­a­ra­tion of sew­ers.

They said they will con­tinue to un­der­take works, sub­ject to fund­ing.

Ard­more Park.
