About the scheme
What will the scheme do?
- Reduce the risk of flooding to the village
- Increase the capacity of the system by over 70%.
This will be achieved by:
- Increasing the size of existing culverts
- Widening river channels
- Removing obstacles in channels
The work involves:
- increasing the size of the culvert crossing the A544 at the north end of the village
- improving the river channel in Dalar Bach
- building new floodwalls in Dalar Bach at the carpark through to Llain Hiraethog inlet
- improving the channel in front of Llain Hiraethog
- replacing the culvert from the Llain Hiraethog channel down Ffordd Gogor and connecting back into the Afon Bach at Uwch yr Aled
The work will also include:
- Diverting BT cables, the Welsh Water foul sewer and water mains
- Creating a seating area at Llain Hiraethog
- Removing weir structures at three locations to help fish migration
- Installing baffles along the channel bed to give resting points for migrating fish
- Installing vegetated retaining wall to improve biodiversity
- Creating two new communal areas along the A544
- 85% funded by Welsh Government
- 15% funded by Conwy County Borough Council
