The objective of the Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) is to comprehensively review the intended Project and assess the environmental impacts and set mitigation measures and a monitoring plan. Accordingly, the IEE will assist in decision making and provide the basis for project permitting.
Moreover, the IEE demonstrates the environmental benefits of the project as it aims to reuse excavation and earth works material that are usually disposed at the sides of public roads and watercourses. This Project comprises a double benefit; an environmental one by reducing uncontrolled materials disposal and another benefit for the project’s owner through gaining financial profits.
