OPW Floodmap website embarrasses Government

category national | environment | news report author Tuesday October 17, 2006 09:47author by H20 Report this post to the editors

Planning sensibly in a wet country

Want to see if you need those new wellies? You can check it out now on www.floodmaps.ie

There is a big publicity push today for the launch of the new OPW flooding maps website – Minister Tom Parlon on Morning Ireland saying it is intended to inform Planners about areas to avoid etc. and contains all the data on floods in the last 100 years that we need to remember when planning development in the future. Awkwardly for the Government and its buddies in Indaver Ireland the website has the 2004 flood report and photos of the floodwaters by the planned Indaver toxic waste site near Ringaskiddy – log onto www.floodmaps.ie and look up Ringaskiddy for the details. Thanks to the OPW for this opportunity to remind the media and public of the craziness of Bord Pleanala in overturning their Inspector who recommended refusal of planning permission on this critical issue. Common sense (not to mention the WHO who should know a bit about hazardous waste risks) tells us not to put a hazardous waste incinerator and huge toxic waste store in a floodplain, but An Bord Pleanala says it knows better – time is continuing to reveal who was right and it wasn’t the Board.
