DCC Update

FYI, re: High Tides and Council Activity

Posted January 24th, 2012

Astro high tides over the above period are forecast to be highest tomorrow, Wednesday 25th January at 12.44pm. This is forecast to reach a level of 2.27m Malin (4.78 mLAT), is just below the 2.3m Malin Tidewatch level, also below the 2.5m Tide Alert and 2.7m Severe Tide Alert levels.

In view of the high tide prediction, the three tide gates from London Bridge Road up to Newbridge Avenue will be closed. In addition to this, the Merrion Gates barrier and the two barriers at the Aviva Stadium and Derrynane Gardens and will also be erected.

This is merely a precaution and an opportunity for DCC Crews to gain expertise in the operation of the barriers and the Tidal Flood defence gates. The Drainage & Waste Water Services Department will be carrying out the various works set out above from 9am tomorrow morning.
