Description The objectives of the proposed Project are to increase wastewater treatment capacity, reduce water pollution, and improve the environment of the Shandong area in the Hai River Basin. The Project will include (i) construction of wastewater treatment facilities to increase treatment capacity by 800,000 m3/day, (ii) installation of water recycling systems to increase production capacity by 600,000 m3/day, and (iii) development of appropriate solid waste management systems with treatment capacity of 1,300 tons/day.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy With the lack of environmental infrastructure, particularly in secondary cities and counties, and inadequate management of the wastewater and solid waste services, Shandong Provincial Government would have difficulty achieving the pollution control targets in the SHRB Plan. The Project will (i) support institutional changes and physical investments to reduce the high levels of untreated wastewater; (ii) adopt cleaner technologies, and promote water reuse to augment water resources; and (iii) control non-point source of pollution through effective solid waste management. The Project is a major urban infrastructure initiative under Shandong's Five-Year Plan. Addressing urban environmental problems and water resources protection is a high priority in ADB's Country Strategy and Program for the PRC. The Project builds on experience gained and lessons learned from ADB's past and current activities in the wastewater sector and environmental improvement initiatives in the Haihe River Basin. The Project aims to address the key sectoral issues and constraints by (i) employing an integrated multisector approach to environmental pollution control in Shandong Hai River Basin; (ii) supporting institutional reforms related to effective environmental pollution control management at local levels; (iii) addressing water conservation issues; (iv) enhancing capacity in environmental pollution control through improved management of municipal, industrial wastewater, and solid waste services; (v) developing sustainable wastewater treatment and solid waste management companies; and (vi) evaluating realistic options for potential private sector participation. The use of previous investments in wastewater collection and treatment facilities will be optimized. The Project, which is consistent with ADB's Water Policy, will help the Government to achieve the Millennium Development Goals of environmental sustainability and increased access to improved sanitation.
Impact Enhanced urban environment and public health of residents in Hai River Basin (HRB) within Shandong Province.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects The Project will improve the environment and public health and safety in the counties and provide improved wastewater and solid waste management systems for the service areas. Envirnonmental Monitoring Reports have been submitted on time.
Involuntary Resettlement The Project will affect people through (i) permanent acquisition of land for the wastewater treatment plant, solid waste management, and pumping stations; (ii) temporary use of land for installation of trunk sewers and water pipelines; and (iii) demolition of buildings. Seven of the nine subprojects will have land acquisition and resettlement impacts affecting seven villages and three enterprises. Resettlement requirements have been considered carefully and incorporated into the project design. Resettlement Plans for the seven subprojects have been prepared in accordance with the PRC Land Administration Law (1998), the State Council Decision to Deepen Reform and Strictly Enforce Land Administration (2004), and ADB's Policy on Involuntary Resettlement (1995).
Indigenous Peoples Not applicable.
