This environmental assessment for the India - Rampur Hydropower Project identifies environmental impacts which are likely to occur as a result of the construction and operation of the project. Some of the impacts include: increase in soil erosion, pollution by construction spoils, use of land for labor colonies, solid waste from labor colonies, acquisition of land for various project appurtenances. Impacts on migratory fish species; impacts on spawning and breeding grounds due to diversion of water for hydropower generation. Impacts due to emission generated by crushers and other equipment. Impacts due to increase vehicular movement. Noise due to operation of various equipment. Increase of water-related diseases. Some mitigation measures include: control of pollution from labor camps during construction phase; restoration and landscaping of environmental management in road construction; muck disposal plan; control of air pollution; control of water pollution; biodiversity management plan; fish management; and disaster management plan.
