The objectives for the development of the initial project are: The extension and rehabilitation of water distribution network, the production of water wells, drinking and construction of reservoirs and water treatment equipment to increase water supply coverage and to provide a good quality water in a continuous manner in Greater Tunis and through a series of urban centers in the regions of the North and the Center of Tunisia. The additional financing will help meet growing demand for drinking water in the Greater Tunis, the Sahel and the Cap Bon in order to ensure continuity and securing the water serving all National Company for Water Exploitation and Distribution (SONEDE) subscribers. It consists in: i) the extension and rehabilitation of complex treatment plants Ghdir El Golla; ii) rehabilitation of the station of Belli complex processing; and iii) the establishment of a new replacement program of counters. The project may generate negative impacts on the environment, although for the most part they would be of minor importance and scope. Some negative impacts would be temporary and will appear during the construction phase and other impacts continue to occur during the operating phase. The most significant negative impacts will focus on the following environmental aspects: 1) air pollution emission (dust); 2) Noise (Noise and vibration) The noise comes from machines and trucks carrying construction materials, causing discomfort to the population living near or surrounding the construction site; 3) Disruption of traffic; 4) Visual Impact; 5) Contamination of soil. In addition to the impacts listed, additional financing may produce wastes of various kinds during the rehabilitation treatment plants (waste demolition, cleaning of structures, equipment and dilapidated counters replaced), sorting, handling, storage, recovery, recycling or final disposal of such waste.
