Description

The Project will enhance the urban environment and improve public health and quality of life for urban residents in the cities of Changchun, and Yanji, by increasing wastewater coverage, enhancing solid waste management, improving the supply of potable water, and reducing air pollution. The outcome of the Project will be improved water supply, wastewater management, solid waste management and efficient central heating in Changchun and Yanji. These will be achieved by (i) increasing the wastewater treatment rate in Changchun, and in Yanji; (ii) providing a supply of reliable and high-quality potable water in Changchun and Yanji; (iii) improving the solid waste management facility in Changchun; (iv) reducing air pollution by shutting down 318 inefficient coal based boilers and replacing them with a central cogeneration plant in Yanji; (v) reducing the incidence of waterborne and respiratory diseases; (vi) increasing the efficiency and management capacity of the implementing agencies (IAs); (viii) integrating approaches for basinwide pollution prevention and control; and (viii) improving cost recovery through a better tariff structure, with gradual increases to achieve full cost recovery.

The Project has three componentsand related capacity building, broken down into 7 subcomponents (outputs) and 33 activities.

(i) Changchun city component of water supply, wastewater treatment and solid waste management. The Project will construct No. 5 wastewater treatment plant (WTP) with a capacity of 300,000 cubic meter per day, 25.5 kilometer (km) of water transmission pipelines, 58.15 km of distribution network, 2 pumping stations, Jingyue WWTP with a treatment capacity of 100,000 cubic meter per day, 53.46 km of sewer network, 34.2 km of stormwater pipelines, 36 km of wastewater interceptors, sanitary landfill facility with a capacity of 2,600 tons per day with a 10 year service life, and additional expected life of 12 years after expansion.

(ii) Yanji city component of water supply, and wastewater treatment. The Project will construct a WTP with a capacity of 60,000 cubic meter per day, 10.1 km of raw water transmission pipelines, 9 km of distribution mains, 35.7 km of water distribution pipelines, effluent reuse WWTP with a capacity of 55,000 cubic meter per day, 16.1 km of water reuse transmission mains, and 40 km of sewer network.

(iii) Yanji city component of central heating system. The Project will construct a central heating system in south Yanji city with 77 km of heating pipelines, 35 heat exchange stations, booster pumping station, central heating system in the north of Yanji city with 77.6 km of heating pipelines, 57 heat exchange stations and heating area of 9.3 million square meters.

The Project also provides for institutional capacity building for effective management including (i) providing training to strengthen organizational structure and staff resources to implmement, operate and maintain the project components; (ii) strengthening management practices in human resources, finance, and corporate planning; and (iii) providing for managers and staff responsible for service delivery to ensure efficient implementation and sustainability of project benefits.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project will directly benefit an urban population of 3.2 million in Changchun and 420,400 in Yanji. Of the total diect beneficiary population, about 240,000 are classified as poor. The Project will benefit the urban residents through (i) improvements to water supply infrastructure, (ii)disposal of wastewater, (iii) better solid-waste management facilities, and (iv) an improved energy efficient central heating system. The Project will contribute to poverty reduction through increased quality of life by reducing the incidence of waterborne and airborne diseases, and providing employment opportunities during construction and operation of the project facilities, with anticipated effects on economic development
Impact Enhanced urban environment and improved public health and quality of life for the urban residents in the cities of Changchun and Yanji in Jilin Province.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Implementation of environmental requirements is generally in order according to the established institutional arrangements for internal monitoring, supervision, and reporting. The risk analysis and emergency plan that was developed to prevent the risk of accidental release of heavily concentrated leachage with high COD concentration was implemented safely, while the procurement of leachate treatment of equipment was delayed. The environmentalresponsibilities outlined in the EMP were largely fulfilled (though with slight delays)
Involuntary Resettlement The Resettlement Plans for seven project components 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 Involuntary Resettlement Policy to ensure that affected persons will be made better off (or at least not worse off) as a result of the Project. Overall the LAR has been implemented smoothly.
Indigenous Peoples There are no negative impact on the minority population. The large Korean ethnic group will be better off with the Project.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Jilin Provincial Government, Changchun Municipal Government, Yanji Municipal Government, and the Implementing Agencies were involved in identifying and conceptualizing the Project. Preparation of the Project is being led by the Jilin Construction Department, with support from the Jilin Finance Bureau, Jilin Development and Reform Commission, the Changchun Municipal Government, the Yanji Municipal Government, and the Implementing Agencies. The public were consulted through environmental consultation workshops, household questionnaires and public hearing meetings.
During Project Implementation Consistent consultations were implemented.

    Providing Clean, Clear Water in the People's Republic of China

    ADB's water supply and sanitation project in Jilin is benefiting urban households and helping control pollution in rivers Seventeen years is not a short period. Citizens in Meihekou City in northeastern People's Republic of China's (PRC) Jilin Province - one of the PRC's poorer provinces, lagging behind in the provision of basic social services - must have never imagined they would have to wait so long to satisfy their thirst for clean drinking water.
