I'm sorry I missed that bit of the conversation with Gav! The people responsible for flood defences (the OPW) _generally_ spend their time making things worse. Flood defences in one area that will result in increased water flow further downstream, for example (which is common in rural towns and villages). Or worse, their continual clearing of river banks by means of removal of trees and bushes, because of some regulation dating, I believe, from the 1940s.
