Mitigation measures include: a) the ground water abstraction should be restricted to permissible limit. Ground water balance must be taken in to consideration while using groundwater as a source; b) care shall be taken to avoid creation of borrow pits as far as possible, if not, proper care shall be taken for human and animal safety and to avoid water logging; c) all pipe appurtenances should be tested before laying; d) future traffic projections to decide on the carriageway, proper identification of material dumping during construction; and e) check for noise levels of construction equipment construction activities with moderate to high noise levels should be carried out as far as possible only during daytime.
