China - Yan'an Water Supply Project : environmental assessment : Environmental assessment : main report (Chinese)

The development objectives of the Yan'an Water Supply Project are to divert water from the yellow river in a reasonable manner to alleviate shortages of urban domestic water and some industrial water in the central areas (Baota District) of Yan'an. Negative impacts include: fire and explosion, water pollution, air pollution, vocational health and safety of construction workers, and soil and water conservation. Mitigation measures include: 1) relevant regulations on hazardous goods transportation shall be strictly followed in the process of inflammable and explosive material transportation; 2) environmental protection measures shall be in place for construction wastewater and domestic sewage treatment during construction, and irregular construction site inspection shall be done; 3) quantities of explosive use shall be accurate; 4) drinking water and food disinfection shall be well arranged; 5) solid waste volume generated during water treatment will be reduced through optimization of sludge dewatering and drying process; and 6) during open excavation and blasting, use of wet bags to cover the surface is encouraged to reduce dust generated by these operations. Two water spraying vehicles would be provided for the project, which would periodically spray water in construction sites and along construction access roads during non-rainy days to reduce dust, shorten polluting period of dust and narrow pollution scope.
