Negative impacts include noise, dust and smoke onto the natural environment, occupational hazards, health and safety aspects, loss of vegetation cover, waste management during the construction and operational stages and the project’s impact on socio-cultural and economy of the environment during its operational stages, etc. Mitigation measures include: strict control under construction contract to limit these impacts to acceptable levels; watering to be enforced to keep dust levels low; exercise shall be carried during normal working hours; ensure that pipeline connections and joints are regularly checked; disposal to be done by the authorized refuse handlers; regular collection of wastes to avoid accumulation at the site; the chemical and bacteriological quality tests to be done regularly; and the community should disinfect the water before use.
