Egypt - El-Tebbin Power Project : environmental and social impact assessment : Executive summary (Inglês)

This is an environmental and social impact assessment for the El-Tebbin Power Project for Egypt, which provides the country with energy supply at least cost and in a sustainable manner, through investment in new generation capacity and support for improved sector performance. This report discusses likely risks and proposes measures to mitigate them. Recommendations include the following: To reduce dust emissions caused by demolition activities, remove debris frequently and maintain stockpiles, minimize drop heights when transferring material, keep roads damp, compact roads and use gravelling, use sheeting for transport lorries, and enforce vehicle speed limits. To prevent water quality impacts, collect effluents and remove off-site for treatment, use drainage plan, including channels incorporating sediment basins or traps to prevent overflow, prevent stockpiles for soil erosion, maintain work site, use a slit retention pond to guide run-off into appropriate watercourses, set up wheel washing facilities, and water and toilet facilities connected with sewage treatment facilities, and stop contaminated water from discharge into public sewers. To arrest noise, enforce vehicle speed limits, control vehicle routing, fit equipment with silencers, avoid activities at night, ban heavy vehicle movements at night, and use protective hearing gear for workers. To minimize habitat disturbance, restrict workers and vehicles to the site, develop a tree conservation plan, and retain plants near the drainage banks and fences by the power plant to accumulate pollutants and act as wind shields, respectively. To lessen land contamination, monitor and control spoil, dispose of waste materials unsuitable for reuse at authorized sites, provide oil and suspended solid interceptors, manage excavations to avoid drainage to aquifers, provide impermeable bases to prevent absorption of spills, and have a licensed contractor dispose of hazardous waste. Schedule traffic to avoid peak hours on local roads and transport workers by contract bus. Any accessible asbestos will be removed by a specialist. Recycle, store, transport, and dispose of wastes using secure methods that avoid losses or leaks, cover trucks and use waste containers, and record waste quantities. Ensure occupational health and safety. Limit dredged areas and dispose of sediment.
