India - Madhya Project Urban Development Project : environmental assessment : Environment and social assessment report for water supply augmentation at Burhanpur (English)

The development objective of the Madhya Pradesh Urban Development Project is to enhance the capacity of MPUDC to improve coverage of key urban services and increase the revenue of participating urban local bodies. Some of the negative impacts include: i) interference with the physical setting blockage of natural drainage system at valley crossings; ii) interruption of existing installations on the pipeline route will move along installations property accesses; iii) noise generation; iv) dust will be emitted during excavation and related earthworks; v) disposal of spoil; vi) solid wastes generated from the construction activities are excess excavated earth (spoils), discarded construction materials, cement bags, wood, steel, oils, fuels and other similar items; vii) vegetation loss; viii) workers accidents and hazards; ix) reduced downstream flows; x) increased domestic wastewater generation; xi) sludge management; Some of the migration measures include : i) restoration shall be undertaken to ensure that the original setting is as much as possible retained. ii) ensure dissemination of relevant information to each of the affected parties; iii) use of quiet equipment and limit pickup trucks and other small equipment to a minimum idling time and observe a common-sense approach to vehicle use, and encourage workers to shut off vehicle engines whenever possible; iv) wet all active construction areas as and when necessary to reduce dust; v) care should be taken to avoid spoil location in land that could otherwise be used for productive purposes. vi) minimization of solid waste during construction of the proposed Project through use of durable, long-lasting materials that will not need to be replaced often, thereby reducing the amount of construction waste generated over time; vii) retention of trees and shrubs, where possible on the potential sites for screening of the visual impact; viii) all construction workers should be advised of the dangers associated with construction work; ix) there should be due adherence to the safest maximum abstractable water quantities of throughout the project life; x) plans should be put in place by the ULBs or MPUDC on how to address sewer and waste water; xi) apply quicklime treatment to dewatered sludge in order to create a pathogen and odor free product.
