Engineers Ireland Flood Risk Management Conference

Feb 14, 2014

As part of Engineer’s Week 2014, Engineers Ireland held a Flood Risk Management Conference in Dublin on Wednesday 12th February to discuss the latest information on flood planning and protection measures and to learn from current best practice examples. With recent widespread flooding in both the UK and Ireland the conference was timely and provided a platform for discussion of future flood mitigation measures.
