Category (based on the spatial extent of potential impacts and potential impacts on human health and natural and manmade resources.) - A

Project type- 1. Mining Extraction of Natural Resources and Power generation 5. Manufacturing and Fabrication

Project sub-type- 1. b) Offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration, development and production

Project Details - Public Hearing for Drilling of 350 Development Wells. Impact on air: a number of sources are there to cause potential impacts on air quality, which are as follows: Emissions from DG sets used as part of the drilling rig; Flaring of gases primarily during the testing phase will contribute to additional air pollution; Fugitive emissions during site preparation and closure phases Emissions from vehicular movement. Possible Biological Impacts of proposed Project Impact on terrestrial fauna due to noise Project infrastructure and well development may disturb agriculture land near site. Drilling fluids, spillage, leakage and well treatment may produce chemical spillage which will disrupt agriculture of nearby farm Drilling activity may increase deposition of dust and dust settling on the vegetation may alter or limit plants' abilities to photosynthesize and/or reproduce.

Location of the Project - Mehsana Asset in District Mehsana, Patan, Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad) District Gandhinagar, Gujarat

District- Gandhinagar

State- Gujarat

Date & Time: 21-May-2013 12:00 hrs

Category (based on the spatial extent of potential impacts and potential impacts on human health and natural and manmade resources.) - B

Project type- 7. Physical Infrastructure including environmental services

Project sub-type- 7. h) Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETP's)

Project Details - Public Hearing for expansion of the Common Effluent Treatment Facility within the existing premises of CETP. Total area of the project is about 37804 m2. Area of existing units and structures is 4515.6 m2. Area of proposed units and structure is 4416.3 m2. CETP utilizes raw water from their existing borewell within the site premises. Impact on air: During the construction phase of the project, the major activities will involve earth work excavation, transport of construction materials, building of structures etc. These activities would cause a general increase in levels of dust and suspended particulate matter in the ambient air.Impacts on ambient air during operation phase would be due to emissions from operation of additional DG set of 250 and 500 kVA. Impact due to Noise:The operation of ETP units and associated machinery such as pumps, blowers, agitators, aerators including the DG set is likely to emit noise in the range of 60 to 65 db (A) and can be experienced at site boundary.

District- Vadodara

State- Gujarat

Date & Time: 29-May-2013 11:00 hrs

Venue: Project Site at CETP of EICL, Plot No. 612-B, ECP Road, Village: Umraya, Taluka Padra, District Vadodara Gujarat

Project type- 1. Mining Extraction of Natural Resources and Power generation 5. Manufacturing and Fabrication

Project sub-type- 1. a) Mining of Minerals

Project Details - Public Hearing for the enhancement of production of bauxite from 340 TPA (Pre 1994) to 51,190 TPA, as Run-of-Mine (ROM) from Lamba bauxite mine in Lamba village of Kalyanpur Taluka of Jamnagar District of Gujarat. Total area of the mine: 32.38 ha. Impact due to mining and transportation activity. Impact on land area:Land degradation is possible one of the adverse impacts of open cast mining is in the form of excavated voids and also in the form of waste dumps. There may be wear and tear of the main roads connecting to the villages specially during rainy season because of running of heavy vehicles i.e. truck, tractors and bull dozers, jeeps.

District- Jamnagar

State- Gujarat

Date & Time: 4-June-2013 15:00 hrs

Venue: At Survey No. 30/P, (32.38 Ha.), Village Lamba, Taluka Kalyanpur, District Jamangar, Gujarat
