Boulders won't impact flood levels, says MU

Some residents in Laxey worried about bad weather

Some in Laxey are afraid work to shore up the village river banks will increase the risk of flooding.

Manx Utilities is placing large boulders either side to protect against erosion and says they won't impact flood levels.

The rocks will only be in the river over the winter as a temporary measure, and will be replaced by full 'alleviation scheme'.

It's being presented to residents on 28 and 29 September 2020 at the Laxey Working Men’s Institute.
