China - Fujian Meizhou Bay Navigation Improvement Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 3) : Environmental management plan (English)

The development objective of the Fujian Meizhou Bay Navigation Improvement Project for China is to improve the capacity of the main navigation channel and enhance the operational management capacity of Meizhou Bay Harbor. Negative impacts include: 1) potential changes to the hydrodynamics conditions that is fundamental to the Bay's environmental and ecological aspects, notably carrying capacity, siltation and erosion, etc.; 2) ecological impacts such as loss of benthic organisms and inter-tidal zone which is considered natural habitats; 3) water quality degradation; 4) impacts on aquaculture, etc. In order to avoid, minimize and address potential environmental and management problems arising from port operations, the port management body should comply with national environment and safety legislation to avoid or minimize potential impacts from vessel movements and operational emissions and wastes and liaise closely with national and provincial agencies to facilitate early identification of potential impacts. Mitigation measures specific to the Project includes the development and implementation of an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and adherence to applicable regulations, guidelines and conditions of permit. There will be spatial and temporal overlap between the Project and commercial fisheries with respect to benthic habitats and sediment quality, and marine fish and water quality. The reasonably foreseeable projects have relatively small marine footprints which will minimize the potential cumulative effects of these projects on benthic habitats and sediment quality, and marine fish and water quality.
