The fight continues against future flooding with work at Rhyl cut

Share this story:

Flooding is always high on the safety agenda during the bad weather in the winter, mixed with the high tides. Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has been carrying out important work during the last few weeks on a flood defences in Rhyl.

A new penstock will play a vital part in keeping the tide out of low-lying areas of Rhyl.

Located at the Rhyl cut outfall into the Clwyd estuary, the penstock will give extra protection to the town, providing a back up to the existing tidal flap which can become blocked with debris.

The penstock will be operated manually by NRW staff during high-tides.

Keith Ivens, Flood Risk Manager, NRW said: “Keeping communities safe from flooding is a key part of our work.

“Constructing a new penstock at Rhyl sluice provides added support to the defence in reducing the risk of tidal flooding to areas of the town

“The penstock will be lowered temporarily in an emergency and will then return to its open position.

“Whilst we can’t prevent all flooding from happening, we work to reduce the risks to people and their properties and hope this latest asset will provide peace of mind to people in Rhyl.”

NRW is also looking at the long-term implications of flooding in Rhyl, working with our partners to face future challenges such as sea level rise and climate change.

Anyone concerned about flooding can check their flood risk, and find out if a free flood warning service is available in their area by calling Floodline on 0345 988 1188 or by visiting www.naturalresources.wales/flooding.

It will complement  work already underway on the town’s waterpark, due to open in 2019, the 1891 restaurant and refurbishment work on the Pavilion Theatre.

Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire County Council, said: “The removal of this building will open up views of the seafront from the Children’s Village and allow the Town Plaza element of the waterfront development to move forward.

“Residents are already able to see the changes ongoing in the town, including the work to illuminate the Sky Tower as well as the waterpark development, 1891 and the refurbishment of the Pavilion Theatre.

“It is great to see these key developments taking shape and we hope this will be the catalyst for further investment in Rhyl in the future.”

In addition to the work being carried out by Denbighshire County Council, a Premier Inn hotel will be opening in February and work on a 73-bedroomTravelodge and family restaurant started last month and will open in December this year.
