Kingdom of Eswatini - Water Supply and Sanitation Access Project : Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (anglais)

The objective of the Water Supply and Sanitation Access Project is to increase access to improved water supply and sanitation services in targeted areas of Eswatini. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: air monitoring will be conducted periodically to assess the air emissions level at the treatment plant; it will be ensured that construction meets applicable standards and industry practices such as conducting regular inspection and maintenance; implementing a leak detection and repair program (including records of past leaks and unaccounted-for water to identify potential problem areas) and replacing mains with a history of leaks of with a greater potential for leaks because of their location, pressure stresses, and other risk factors; the flush water will be discharged into a separate storm sewer system with storm water management measures such as a detention pond, where solids can settle, and residual chlorine consumed before the water is discharged; erosion during flushing will be minimized by avoiding discharge areas that are susceptible to erosion and spreading the flow to reduce flow velocities; oil swabs, spent ad expired chemicals and other hazardous waste will be placed in separate, marked bins and will be stored in containers for environmentally sound disposal in accordance with the Waste Regulations, 2000; and disposing of waste will be done appropriately and on a regular basis in an approved Waste disposal site.
