Ballycullen Flood Alleviation Scheme - South Dublin County Council
The Ballycullen Flood Alleviation Scheme was implemented to reduce the risk of flooding of homes in the Ballycullen area. This was in response to the floods in October 2011, which caused significant damage to 50 homes in the vicinity of the Ballycullen Stream, which runs under Kilakee Road/Gunny Hill and surrounding housing estates before joining the Dodder River. In October 2017, a 1.5 kilometre pipe was inserted to alleviate pressure on the existing pipe. The new pipe is now able to withstand a 1-in-100-year flood event.
