DUMFRIES and Galloway Council flood team’s events are on Thursday, June 27 from 3pm to 8pm, Friday, June 28 from 10am to 6pm and on Saturday, June 29 from 10am to 2pm.
All three events are in the Buccleuch Centre and people can drop in at any time to find out more.
On display will be an outline of the flood protection scheme, the location and design of flood defences and an aerial flyover and 3D model. Members of the team will be available to answer questions.
The council commissioned consultant RPS to design the scheme.
A report to the economy, environment and infrastructure committee on Langholm’s scheme last month said the review of costs and benefits was almost done and estimates showed the cost to be £7.4m and the benefits £9.7m.
This meant a benefit cost ratio was possible and the scheme would be eligible for Scottish government funding.
The final costs would be reported to the policy and resources committee to consider the financial implications to the council in progressing the scheme.
The council has also been investigating a flood protection scheme in Holmwood.
The original estimate of £250,000 has now been revised up to between £375,000 and £400,000 after groundwork investigations forced a rethink.
Committee members noted the increase in costs on the Holmwood works and agreed to ground investigation works being done to inform the cost estimate.
They also agreed to align the progression of this project to the main Langholm flood protection scheme with further reports to be submitted once detailed costs of the scheme are finalised.
The report said works to protect properties at Holmwood from water run-off from the surrounding hills would involve installing a combination of drains and berms to intercept overland flows west of Holmwood Drive to discharge into the Meikleholmside watercourse.
This would alleviate the flood risk to properties and gardens in Holmwood Drive and Meikleholmside.
Faw Side Community Group, which is fighting plans by Community Windpower to build 45 turbines in the Ewes valley, has asked whether RPS was instructed to take the proposed windfarm into account.
They are concerned that extra run-off from the hills could cause greater flooding downstream, particularly in Langholm.
More water would run off because peat would be dug out, ditches cleared and roads built, creating a greater area of hard surfaces.
