Cork County Council has appointed Priority Geotechnical Ltd to carry out Ground Investigation works in the Midleton area. The works will involve drilling boreholes, excavation of trial pits and testing and monitoring (both on site and in laboratory). The purpose of this contract is to obtain information in relation to the geology and hydrogeology of the study area, which will allow a greater understanding of the interaction between flooding mechanisms and groundwater.
Works are due to commence in late October, and are programmed to take place over the course of 9 weeks, with additional monitoring and testing following the main works.
Priority Geotechnical Ltd will be in contact with landowners in the coming days to arrange access to monitoring locations, and your cooperation with these works will be greatly appreciated.
This contract is an important step towards developing a robust Flood Relief Scheme for the Midleton area.
