Guyana - Disaster Risk Management Project : environmental assessment : Environmental assessment for civil works (Inglês)

The objective of the Disaster Risk Management Project for Guyana is to reduce the vulnerability of Guyana's low-lying coastal area to flooding by reducing the risk of dam failure and improving drainage in the coastal areas. Negative impacts include: air pollution, dust, soil erosion, water quality, noise pollution, waste management, drainage, and loss of ecology. Mitigation measures include: minimize and contain suspended sediment within the immediate zone of construction; undertake appropriate containment measures during concrete pours to ensure that uncured concrete or concrete leachate does not enter any watercourse or drainage; ensure that water intakes or drainage channels for domestic and irrigation purposes are protected from damage at all times; provide hearing protection to workers exposed to high noise levels such as those involved in demolition; provide earplugs for employees who operate heavy duty machines; Personnel working in dusty environments should be required to use respirators; during dry periods it may be necessary to soak routes traversed by vehicles and equipment. Dry areas should be soaked as necessary, depending on the weather condition; since the construction activities will be temporary and fuel storage will be moved as activities progress, it will not be feasible to construct proper facility for fuel storage. As such, it is recommended that fuel be transported to the site as needed or in small quantities; and fuel which will require storage should be sited a safe distance from waterways, site offices and work areas and should be elevated to detect any leaks.
