ENVIRONMENT MANAGEMENT PLAN Environmental impacts shall be assessed by analyzing all the project activities in relation to their potential impacts on every aspect of the physical, biological and human environments of the area. The assessment shall form a checklist matrix that would identify significant impacts that will require mitigation or environmental management. In some cases, additional site-specific investigation may be required to specify adequate mitigating measures. This matrix shall be completed for each project stage and project activity so that a detailed assessment of all the potential impacts can be made. Methods undertaken by the consultant shall follow the Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) guidelines specified by the DOE and the NREB. 7.1 Definitional of Abatement and Mitigating Measures All significant adverse environmental impacts identified will necessitate the requirement to address either alternative operations or practices, or define abatement and mitigating measures that will minimize or eliminate the adverse impacts. In areas where adverse impacts may occur, it may be necessary to specify routine and systematic monitoring procedures to assess environmental changes caused by the operations.

7.1.1 Soil Erosion The proposed project will generate activities that will result in accelerated soil erosion from filling materials such as borrowed pit. The degree of potential soil erosion shall be estimated based on information that is available, soil characteristics, rainfall, and land management practices. A map showing the relative level of erosion risk shall be produced. The impacts of soil erosion on water quality, potential sedimentation, and aesthetics shall be considered, and appropriate mitigating measures shall be proposed to alleviate serious soil erosion hazard. 7.1.2 Air, Water and Noise Pollution The existing ambient noise level, air and water quality in the project site and its vicinity shall be established during the field visits. These data shall then be examined in relation to the project activities. The activities such as land preparation works may affect the air and water qualities adversely through dust and soil erosion. These factors shall be considered for the development and the operation stage after the project has been constructed.

The water quality downstream of the construction site may be affected during and after construction. Hence, issues such as water management, disposal/release of colder or stagnant water from the lower levels, changes in turbidity levels would need to be considered. 7.1.3 Hydrological Aspects Changes in the hydrological regime of the nearby existing rivers/streams and its tributaries (if any) and their effects on the existing drainage patterns will be assessed in view of the earthworks (cut-and-fill) involved. Catchment areas within the influence of the proposed project shall be studied to determine the hydrological aspects of the site and the potential effects of the project on future hydrological regime. The hydrology of the river system and its catchment shall be studied, and the hydrological factors such as sediment yield/transport during construction to be addressed also. 7.1.4 Engineering Aspects The development of the proposed project construction will entail the preparation of the site before the construction operation can proceed. The preparation includes mobilization of staff and equipment, removal and disposal of excess vegetation (if any), construction of temporary drainage (if necessary), and provision of utilities. 7.1.5 Occupational Health and Safety The health and safety of the workers are important issues that must be addressed properly because of the nature of the work and the machinery used. Possible hazards of the construction industry include accidents involving heavy machinery. The works that are particularly hazardous shall be identified so that the workers could be alerted and special precautionary measures be taken. 7.1.6 Socio-Economic Implications This project will cover an area of approximately 70 acres. However, the economical and social consequences of construction activities are to be identified and appropriate measures shall be recommended. The health of the nearby locals (students or staffs) may also be affected as a result of this project. Hence, social survey shall be studied and measures shall be recommended to maintain or improve the present health standards of the locals.

7.1.7 Post-Construction Activities The development and operation of the proposed project may also have significant impacts on the physical and social environment after the construction stage. These post-construction activities, including operation and maintenance may also exert pressure on the environment, and hence will also be assessed and mitigated (if applicable). 7.1.8 Solid Waste and Biomass Management Solid waste (such as construction waste and other schedule waste) and biomass disposal, which will adversely affect the aesthetic aspects, health standard and surface water qualities shall be identified, studied and mitigated (if necessary). Treatment such as grease trap and oil separator, collection, storage and disposal of scheduled wastes shall be provided (if necessary) according to Environmental Quality (Scheduled Wastes) Regulation, 2005. 7.1.9 Sewage Generation and Discharge Investigation and description of sewage generation and discharge, which will affect the water qualities in the vicinity of the proposed project, shall be carried out and water treatment plant shall be recommended (if necessary) according to the Environmental Quality (Sewage & Industrial Effluents) Regulations. 7.1.10 Traffic Studies Manual traffic count shall be conducted during the morning and afternoon peak hour periods at the access point to the project site. The numbers of various classes of vehicles shall be represented by passenger car unit (PCU). Future traffic impact shall be calculated to access (i) existing road capacity to cater for future traffic from the project development, (ii) intersection capacity to cater for traffic from project development and (iii) recommend mitigating measures to improve the traffic flow if significant traffic problem arises such as addition of acceleration and deceleration lane, traffic light at junction, improvement of road etc, associated with the potential environmental and social impacts and assessment of their significance during all stages of project implementation.
