Flood Risk ● Modelling ● Defences
● Climate Change ● Groundwater Flooding ● Legal Issues ● Case Studies
A one-day conference
Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
Date: 12th February 2020
This conference will keep you informed on everything you need to know about flood management in Ireland including legislation changes, best practice and will provide highly useful information on what to expect in the future. We will examine flood management nationwide, including recent developments, SuDS and the use of hydraulic modelling in better understanding and management of flood risk. Case studies will be examined, how issues were handled and lessons learned. This is a must-attend event for anyone involved in flood management, particularly engineers, consultants, civil contractors, local authorities, planners, surveyors, semi state bodies to name a few.
On top of the information received on the day, there are excellent networking opportunities throughout the day, giving you the chance to engage with others in your field, make connections, and create possible future business.
5 Structured CPD Points

Ordnance Survey Ireland is the national mapping agency in the Republic of Ireland. It is an information organisation whose business is to capture, process and distribute spatial information by means of advanced technology.
Ordnance Survey Ireland’s primary product is mapping services. Ordnance Survey Ireland produces urban, rural and tourist and leisure mapping at a variety of scales. This mapping is produced in digital form as well as on paper. In addition, the base data used to create the map products is also used to produce other products such as aerial photography/ orthophotography and Digital Terrain Models and Environmental Reports. It also has an extensive database of historic mapping data from the 1830’s. Ordnance Survey Ireland licenses the use of its data for a wide range of computer based applications such as Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
In responding to the challenge of improving flood alleviation in Ireland, Nicolas O’ Dwyer and Black & Veatch have established a partnership which combines global international expertise with local insight and experience. We are currently working with local authorities and the OPW deliver flood resilient solutions throughout the country.
