The Greater Dublin Strategic Drainage Study undertook a review of local authority drainage practices in five key areas:
- New Development
- Environmental Management
- Inflow/ Infiltration and Exfiltration
- Climate Change
New policies have been drawn up in all of these areas and incorporated in to the Development Plans of the regional local authorities. A set of detailed technical documents has been prepared to effect the implementation of these policies. The following section is the full text of the technical document on Climate Change.
