Yemen - Municipal Water Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 8) : Environmental monitoring report for Taiz governorate (English)

This environmental assessment (EA) addresses the potential adversities which may occur as a result of the Municipal Water Project implementation, and, focuses specifically on the city of Taiz, based on a comprehensive strategy, planned for the development of water supply, and wastewater collection and disposal in the city, to cover a period through 2020. Despite expected overwhelming, positive environmental impacts, the EA identified both major, and secondary environmental issues, proposing mitigation measures as follows. The major issues are: 1) incidence of malaria surrounding water, and sanitation works - the health sector's national malaria program will be supplemented primarily through vector control strategies, targeted at controlling mosquito breeding areas, while, Insecticide Treated Bed-nets (ITB) will also be provided; 2) disposal of dried sewage sludge - the development of a wastewater treatment, and sludge reuse policy will address the long-term solutions needed, following the rehabilitation of lagoons, and water supply systems; and, 3) handling of chemicals during the process of the water system rehabilitation - precautionary clauses will include contractor's responsibility for training workers on chemical handling, and on provision of adequate safety gear, and, a contingency plan will specify measures for spill prevention, and hazardous chemical control. Other measures include soil contamination testing; fencing the surrounding areas to safeguard traffic; appropriate wastewater disposal at selected sites during construction; and, installation of screens, and barriers to abate noise, and air pollution.
