Armenia - Additional Financing for Irrigation Rehabilitation Emergency Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 4) : Rehabilitation of primary canals of irrigation schemes : low-Hrazdan (English)

The objectives of the Additional Financing for Irrigation Rehabilitation Emergency Project for Armenia are: i) to improve water use efficiency in two selected irrigation schemes; and ii) to foster immediate rural employment. Negative measures include: waste management, soil erosion, dust, loss of ecology, air pollution, noise pollution, and water quality. Mitigation measures include: a) the use of already existing quarries and disposal sites, according to the requirements set in the appropriate permits and agreements obtained at the design phase; b) zones of preliminary accumulation of wastes that will cause no damage to the vegetation cover and other components of the environment should be maintained by the contractor; c) all vegetative cover should be restored to its original condition; d) sites for storage of oil and chemicals should be properly equipped to minimize the risks of polluting soils and waters; and e) dust and noise from the construction site should be minimized, especially in resident areas, public places, near schools, etc.
