Azerbaijan - Second National Water Supply and Sanitation Project : environment assessment (Vol. 5) : Environmental impact assessment report for Shabran Rayon (English)

The Second National Water Supply and Sanitation Project (NWSSSP) will address water supply and sanitation in 21 rayons across Azerbaijan, including some in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. The objective of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the NWSSSP is to ensure that the project proposed for World Bank financing is environmentally sound and sustainable and to ensure that the project interventions respond to requirements of the legislation of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the World Bank Safeguard Policies. Adverse impacts of the project will mainly occur at construction/installation phases (construction phase) and , majority of these impacts will be of temporary character. The key environmental risks during construction/operation period of project are, as follows: dust, raised from the roads at construction sites and from material, carrying trucks; waste water from construction/renovation sites; generation, disposal and destruction of solid wastes; Noise generated by machinery and equipment; Use of construction materials that may damage health; Discharge of toxic substances into atmosphere during welding, painting and other works; Impact on earth structure and soils; pollution of soil layer from fuel and lubricants and/and or water pollution; earthworks, removal of extra soils and other materials; Destruction or displacement of flora and fauna in ecologically sensitive areas; and hazard to health and safety to workers, conducting construction works and population. Generally, during operation of WSS system final impact is expected to be positive. However, certain impacts on environment may be expected during operation phase of WSS system too: smell (in case wastewater treatment is not carried out according to regulations); local ecological effects of off-take of water from new sources (in cases where this occurs); impact of potable water, waste (disposed) water and sludge on environment and on human health (particularly if treated water or sludge are used for agriculture), and possible impacts of operational failures during accidents and extra-ordinary situations.
