Nigeria - Community-Based Urban Upgrading Project - environmental assessment (Vol. 7) : Ogun State environmental assessment (Inglês)

The project aims at enabling access to basic services in poor settlements, and upgrading basic infrastructure in seven selected states. This environmental assessment examines the potential environmental adversity by state, comprising a separate volume for each state. Project areas include parts of ancient cities, with no modern urban planning, and narrow earth roads, with no drainage systems, often leading to floods. In turn, this provides for easy breeding ground to vector disease carriers, conducive to high mortality rates. Mitigation addresses health, education, and issues related to construction works as follows. During roads, and drainage construction, community participation will be promoted by intensive awareness campaigns, to prevent refuse dumping along the open drain channels, and the misuse of improved structures. To this end, polythene bags will be provided to households, to be disposed at refuse bins, which will then be emptied regularly by trucks and tippers at selected disposal sites. Inadequate borehole systems, and treatment of steel tanks cause water contamination, thus strict monitoring of water supply systems will be ensured in design specifications, and fully observed, and enforced in compliance with local regulations. In addition, water users committees will be established community wise, to ensure regulations are observed. Operation and maintenance of sanitation facilities will be in strict observance with local regulations, and in compliance with Bank's environmental guidelines, to prevent surface water, and groundwater contamination, thus containing the spread of water borne diseases. Sanitary landfills will be located at selected sites for wastes disposal; traffic safety measures will be enforced; while roads signaling, and lighting will be provided to minimize accidents, and noise disturbances; and, trees and vegetation will be replanted to contain erosion, and improve air qualities.
