China - Anhui Shaying River Channel Improvement Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 3) : Environmental impact report (English)

The development objectives of the Anhui Shaying River Channel Improvement Project for China are: (a) to increase the transport carrying capacity and throughput of the Shaying river; (b) to improve the cost-efficiency of the shipping industry using the river; and (c) to improve the management of navigation and its environmental impacts on the river. Negative impacts include: air pollution, dust, noise, ambient air, water pollution, solid waste, and traffic. Mitigation measures include: 1) if the sludge is utilized, it should be transported in sealed tanker, in order to prevent odor pollutant emissions on the way; 2) the protective equipments should be disseminated to workers and be checked periodically; 3) earthwork, residue, and construction waste should be transported by sealed vehicles. Washing facilities of vehicles should be set at the entrance and vehicles should be washed before getting out of the construction site, mud and sand should not be carried out of the construction site; 4) cement and other particle building materials which are easy to flying should be stored sealedly, lime and sand in the construction site should be piled and covered; 5) operating machinery and equipment should be in accordance with the provisions. Dismantling baffle and bracket shall be subject to operational requirements, noise should be reduced when loading and disposal materials; 6) smaller reamer should be used for dredging in this area, which will reduce the disturbance of the radius during dredging, so as to minimize the impact on water quality; 7) transport vehicles for external-use sediment must be sealed to prevent the leakage on the way which may affect the landscape and health; and 8) when sludge is used for agriculture or river bank greening, the use per land area should be controlled and uniformly applied in the soil.
