China - Zhejiang Qiantang River Basin Small Town Environment Project : consolidated environmental assessment report - executive summary (English)

This document summarizes the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) of the Zhejiang Qiantang River Basin Small Town Environment Project in China, highlighting the main issues and conclusions of the environment impact assessment and environment management plan of the project. According to both Chinese Environmental Assessment (EA) laws and regulations, and the World Bank's operational policy 4.01 environmental assessment, the project is category A for environmental assessment purposes. A full environmental assessment report was required. Environmental Assessments were conducted by accredited EA consulting institutes for each of the eleven subprojects under the project. The subproject EIA reports were prepared following relevant provisions specified in Chinese EA laws, regulations and technical guidelines, as well as the World Bank safeguard policies. The HydroChina Huadong Engineering Corporation (HHEC) carried out the consolidation of Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed project with the assistance of the EA consulting institutes and an international consulting firm Groupe Huit. This executive summary is based on these reports, as well as feasibility studies carried out for the project. The project will support infrastructure investments in the water supply, wastewater and solid waste sectors in selected cities, districts and towns in the Qiantang River Basin. As designed, the project incorporated effective alternatives analysis and engineering measures to maximize project benefits and minimize potential adverse impact. The project will not cause significant adverse environmental impact that are sensitive, diverse or unprecedented in nature because of the small scale investments, which are scattered across eight cities, districts and towns, and the adequate mitigation measures addressing potential impact which may occur.
