Africa - Second West Africa Power Pool Felou Hydroelectric Project : environmental assessment executive summary (英语)

This environmental assessment executive summary for the Second West Africa Power Pool Project, which integrates the national power system operations of Mali, Senegal, and Mauritania, among those of other West African countries into a unified regional electricity market, discusses likely environmental risks associated with the project, and proposes relevant mitigation measures. Among the impacts, and suggested mitigations are the following: dust control activities; selection of aesthetically appealing construction materials; installation of a footbridge to allow river access to tourists and fishermen; loss of mature local trees should be minimized, selecting specific trees for fuel wood use; reduction of soil erosion, and topsoil replacement; monitoring health risks due to electromagnetic effects; disposal sites should be selected far from water courses, particularly if disposing hazardous wastes; working schedules shall be limited to daylight hours to reduce noise around residential areas; decibel levels shall be controlled, and workers will be provided with protective gear; safe traffic regulations will be in place to prevent and control accidents; water quality shall be controlled by limiting its use, by reducing sedimentation, and, by limiting solid and liquid waste discharges; and, collection and storage of oils and chemicals to prevent spills. This summary also includes a summary on the resettlement action plan.
