Borrisokane Surface Water Drainage Scheme

This scheme involved the installation of new stormwater drainage pipes through Borrisokane town to the outfall at the Ballyfinboy River to alleviate surface water flooding. The scheme entailed the laying of pipe, varying in size from 225mm diameter in the upper collection system to 1050mm diameter at the outfall at the associated road gullies. This pipe will transport the surface water run-off from the public road and footpaths. through the town's main street of the town. The works also included upgrading over 300m of water mains and resurfacing local roads.
