Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) the use of natural material sourced from sustainable sources, such as natural rocks, choir, soil strengthening grasses etc. will be used for design of river protection infrastructure such as rip rap and bank strengthening interventions (these may not be sourced from within any protected areas), where suitable; (2) consultations will be carried out with the farmer organizations on the duration and periods that they will have to undergo low water quantities for the agricultural activities; (3) awareness among encroached communities about the importance of maintaining the right bank main canal (RBMC) areas void of solid waste and any destructive activity; (4) alternative areas for buffalo bathing will be explored as it is a major pollution concern in the area; (5) the site entrance will include adequate signage indicating the details of the subproject, implementing agencies etc. as well as safety signage to keep public away; (6) sourcing of any material from protected areas and or designated natural areas, including tank beds of protected reservoirs, will be strictly prohibited; (7) resting and sanitary facilities will be provided separately for both men and women laborers; (8) labor awareness programs to educate the laborers about the code of conduct, general conduct, the environmental and social management plan, occupational health and safety etc. should be conducted throughout the contract period as agreed in the contracts environmental and social management plan; (9) all debris and residual spoil material including any left earth shall be disposed only at locations approved by the engineer for such purpose and subjected to the following clauses; and (10) peak hours in roads with moderate to high traffic will be avoided.
