Brazil - Goias State Highway Management Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 4) : Manual de consulta popular (Português)

This environmental assessment (EA) contains seven volumes, i.e., the Executive Summary, Terms of Reference for the Environmental Impact Assessment, Road Sector Environmental Report, Public Consultations Manual, Synthesis on Environmental Studies for the State of Goias Road Network Improvement and Management Program, Environmental Regulations for Road Construction in Goias, and, Basic Guidelines regarding Involuntary Resettlement Policies, respectively. Nonetheless, both the road maintenance/rehabilitation, and paving components will focus on existing roads, thus only limited environmental impacts are expected, with no direct impacts on the habitat of indigenous populations, cultural heritage sites, or, human displacements. Limited environmental adversity, and mitigation measures directly address construction works: 1) To reduce disruption to land degradation, soil erosion, or drainage patterns, as a result of earthworks, adequate drainage, and appropriate size of culverts, and embankments will be provided. Ground leveling will restore quarries, to be replenished with organic soil, and vegetation, while, waste, or spoil will be disposed of in borrow pits. 2) Adequate engineering designs will address land degradation, and soil erosion, including installation of infiltration ditches, to capture silt, and pollutants. 3) Dust, and noise pollution will be reduced by the proper choice of equipment, by installing sound barriers, and by limiting construction works to daytime schedules only. Long-term adversities, i.e., air and water pollution, impacts on flora and fauna, and traffic safety are addressed in the Environmental Regulations for Road Construction (v. 6).
