Winter Maintenance Programme

The Board is undertaking its winter programme of de-silting maintained drains again this coming winter. The work will begin after the 1st November this year. Those affected have already received Notices from the Board and further contact will be made with them with regard to access and the order in which the drains are worked.

 The material that is removed from the channel bed will be left to drain on the adjacent strip and, where requested, spread on the adjacent land after harvest 2017. Some land owners prefer to work the deposited material themselves so that their work/drilling programmes are not delayed.

 The following is a list of the drains to be de-silted this winter (2016-17):
