    4. 4.  Hydrometric Data  Survey data, property registers  Environmental areas  Geotechnical surveys  Defence Asset Data  Flooding History  Previous studies  Individual Risk Receptors (IRR), hospitals, fire stations etc.
    5. 5.  Cross-sectional survey  Bridge & culvert survey  Weir Survey  Defence Asset Survey  Silt surveys  Large inlet surveys  Light Detection And Ranging (LiDaR)
    6. 6.  Review of historic Floods  Analysis of Hydrometric & Meteorological data  Estimation of design floods  Sensitivity tests for uncertainty  Climate change  Catchment changes
    7. 7.  Build and verify hydraulic Model  Model runs for 2,5,10,25,50,100,200 &1000 years flows.  Sensitivity testing of model  Freeboard
    8. 8.  Development of historical flood maps  Developing flood extent (risk) maps for 10, 100 (200 tidal) and 1,000 year modelled events (10%, 1% and 0.1% AEP)  Development of flood hazard maps (properties, risk receptors & major infrastructure under threat)  Defence failure scenario’s, protected areas  Risk analysis for Global Warming Scenario

    11. 11.  Do nothing  Tidal Barrage  Improvement to channel conveyance  Relocation of properties *  Flood Warning system*  Culverting*  Diversion of watercourses  Catchment wide SuDS*  Proactive Maintenance  Reactive Maintenance  Overland Floodways  Public Awareness Campaign  Rehabilitation of existing defences  Deculverting/ replacing bridges  Individual property protection  Upstream Storage  Walls and Embankments
    12. 12. Core Criteria Objective Economic ( 30%) a Ensure flood risk management expenditure is risk based Benefit Cost Ratio, 10.0=+30%, 1.0=0%, 0.1=-30%. Social ( 30%) a Human Life. Minimise health and safety risk of flood risk management options b Protect key infrastructure c Protect existing, and where possible create new waterside access and recreational and community facilities d Maintain, and where possible increase, existing waterside access for fishing Environmental & Heritage ( 30%) a Safeguard and promote sustainable land use in keeping with WFD b Support the achievement of good ecological status/good ecological potential (GES/GEP) under the WFD. Particularly morphology as a supporting element to ecological status c Protect the flora and fauna of the catchment and, where possible, enhance biodiversity, Remove Alien Species d Protect, and where possible enhance, fisheries within the catchment e Protect, and where possible enhance, landscape character and visual amenity f Protect and where possible enhance known features of cultural heritage importance and their settings Technical ( 10%) a Ensure flood risk management options are operationally viable and to minimise maintenance required. b Ensure flood risk management options are technically and logistically viable c Ensure flood risk managed effectively into the future Other a No increase in flood risk to other areas • Overall scenario must score positive to become viable option • Benefit Cost Ratio ≥ 1
    13. 13.  Strategic Environmental Assessment of Dodder CFRAMS.  SI 436/2004 Planning & Development (SEA) Regulations 2004, Revoke Art.6 of 2003 Regs.  Fall out of EU Regs 2001/42/EC.
    14. 14. Mammals Six species of bat were found during the preparation of the Dodder Habitats Management Plan. These are; •Pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus)- most frequently recorded, •Soprano pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pygmeaus), •Leisler’s bat (Nyctalus leisleri), •Daubenton’s (Myotis daubentonii), •Brown Long-eared bat (Plecotus auritus), and •Whiskered/Brandt’s bats (Myotis nysticanus/brandti).
    15. 15. Cormorant 1 Goosander 1 Sand Martin 3 Wigeon 1 Coot 1, 2 Swallow 3 Teal 1 Black-headed Gull 1 Spotted Flycatcher 1,3 Pochard 1 Common Tern 1 Redpoll 1 Tufted Duck 2 Kingfisher 1, 3 Amber List Species of Medium Conservation Concern in Ireland recorded in the River Dodder Conservation Area (adapted from Newton et al., 1999).
    16. 16. Assessment Unit Dodder AU, DS Donnybrook APSR Water bodies Dodder Preferred flood risk management option Hard Defences Flood risk (1% AEP event) The flood extent maps show that 1467 residential and commercial properties are at risk from flooding from the River Dodder during a 1% AEP event. The hydraulic model shows that the flood risk is from a combination of out of bank flooding and overland flow. Receiving Environment Properties Utility Assets (No) Transport Routes (length km) Agricultural Land (hectares) Social Amenity (No) Residential (No) Commercial (No) 1362 105 0 13.13 0 0 Other features and receptors 4 CSOs 11 listed monuments including water mills, bridges, religious sites, houses and enclosures Land cover – discontinuous urban fabric, industrial and commercial units Fishery habitat is good for all salmonid life stages throughout most of the Dodder system No designated protected areas in the vicinity Important areas of green space which are of significant ecological and natural heritage importance WFD ecological status is poor WFD objective is to restore to at least good status by 2021 (extension due to highly impacted sites) This option consists of hard defences along the left and right bank of the River Dodder. The map shows an indicative line of the location and extent of the flood defences that would protect the APSR during a 1% AEP event. The preferred option would involve the construction of 1,683m of flood walls and 351m of flood embankments averaging 1.2m above ground level.
