The EBRD has classified the project B/1. The project is associated with limited adverse environmental impacts and will result in significant environmental benefits, which can be readily identified and quantified in an Environmental Analysis. An environmental review of the existing operations and facilities is also required.
The environmental appraisal has been based on the review of the following information:
The environmental investigations showed that the project would result in significant environmental improvements and that any adverse environmental impacts would be limited. The project has been structured to meet Ukrainian and EU environmental standards and adequate mitigation measures have been incorporated in the project design. There are no adverse impacts associated with the implementation of the Priority Investment Programme. Construction-related impacts are likely to be localised, short term in nature and they will be efficiently prevented or mitigated by applying international construction practices and planning.
The project will improve availability and quality of drinking water, reduce leakage, improve wastewater collection and treatment facilities and result in energy savings. The operation will significantly contribute to decreasing the level of polluting discharges into the Dnipro River and the Black Sea basin.
An additional TC project will be undertaken to develop an Environmental Management Plan to help the Company and the City to (i) implement the investment Project in the environmentally sound and sustainable manner as well as to (ii) achieve its long term service goals to meet European drinking water supply standards and to provide a wastewater service which meets the EU and national Ukrainian standards for effluent discharges. The EMP will identify further measures that would be needed for the existing water and wastewater treatment facilities to meet applicable Ukrainian and EU environmental standards and help prioritising the most cost-efficient measures to improve environmental, health and safety conditions in water and wastewater management in Dnipropetrovsk..
Environmental information on the project has been disclosed in accordance with the planning and construction procedures of Ukrainian law. No environmental impact assessment was required for the planned scope of the project. In the context of EBRD’s participation in the project, this environmental summary has been disclosed locally at Dnipropetrovsk Water and Wastewater Utility and City of Dnipropetrovsk’s offices as well as in English on EBRD website at www.ebrd.com.
Dnipropetrovsk Water and Wastewater Utility will report to EBRD annually on the measured environmental impacts and on the implementation of the mitigation measures. The Bank will evaluate the project's compliance with the applicable environmental and social standards during the lifetime of the project by reviewing these reports. EBRD environmental specialist or appointed representatives may also conduct monitoring visits to the project when and if deemed appropriate.
