Oppose the OPW Flood Walls
Over 15km of flood walls would damage Cork beyond repair. The scheme supports higher water levels in the river than the city centre. Property values would drop for those behind the walls.
The Little Island tidal barrier
We propose a tidal barrier at Little Island to work with the existing dams to protect more of Cork City for less. The tidal barrier would protect more of the city including Docklands and create opportunity for the local economy.
There is no doubt that a barrier could be built at the proposed location. The tidal barrier scheme has the major benefit of not requiring the construction of walls along the quays in the city.
