Work on an interim solution to recent flooding in the Ballycolman Estate in Strabane is set to begin later this month.
Last month, a number of the houses in the area were severely impacted by flooding during a period of torrential rain.
Houses in the area have been repeatedly flooded over recent years.
DFI Minister John O Dowd visited the area last Tuesday and has now confirmed that work on a short-term term flood alleviation scheme will begin this month.
Strabane Sinn Féin Councillor Michaela Boyle says the news has brought great relief to the residents in the area..
