We're seeking your views on a study into flooding in Carnoustie and Monifieth

Published on Tuesday 23 July 2019

We've commissioned a study into flooding in Carnoustie and Monifieth. We and our consultant, JBA Consulting, are seeking views on our work to date. 

Please come along to Carnoustie Library on Monday 12 August from 10:30am-4pm or Monifieth Library on Tuesday 13 August from 10:30am-4pm to view the project exhibition and ask any questions you may have. 
The project has looked at the risk of flooding from the Barry Burn, Waterybutts ditch and Lochty Burn in Carnoustie, as well as the Monifieth Burn in Monifieth.

A number of households and businesses have been found to be at risk of flooding from each watercourse and we have therefore considered solutions to reduce the risk to the community and lessen the impact that flood events might have.

These options include engineering works either upstream or within the towns but they also include smaller scale measures to help reduce the size of floods and to inform the community when flood events are likely.
The exhibition will show some of the work we have done and the proposed solutions.

Members of our flooding team and staff from JBA Consulting will be on hand to discuss the studies.
