Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects Adverse environmental impacts of the project will mainly be construction impacts, which are expected to be minimal for land based works. The proposed sewer effluent outfall construction on the lagoon reef will require that adequate mitigation measures are implemented. Adverse environmental impacts associated with the project will be prevented, eliminated, or minimized to an acceptable level if the environmental management plan (EMP) component of the initial environmental examination is effectively implemented.
Involuntary Resettlement The majority of the civil works will be constructed on land which currently leased to the Kwajalein Atoll Development Authority which dedicates existing and planned road and utility corridors to public use in perpetuity. However, the lease will expire in 2016 and a new lease is required for existing KAJUR facilities located outside of the utility corridors covering a total area of 5.75 acres (approximately 2.6 hectares) and include the wastewater treatment plant, freshwater and saltwater reservoirs, and sewage pump stations. The project will have temporary resettlement impacts as several fences will need to be temporarily removed to enable expansion of the water supply and sewerage system.
Indigenous Peoples The people of Ebeye consider themselves indigenous in terms of ethnic origin. The project is not expected to have a negative impact on any distinct or vulnerable group of indigenous peoples as defined under ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement.
