ENVIRONMENT AND RESOURCES
AUTHORITY

Notification of Exemption from Environmental Planning Statement

In conformity with Regulation 3(8) of the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations, 2007 (S.L. 549.46) with respect to the application mentioned hereunder, the Environment and Resources Authority has determined that the proposal is unlikely to result in environmental impacts that can be effectively addressed in an Environmental Impact Assessment.  Therefore, the Director of Environment and Resourses agrees that the proposal does not require the preparation of an Environmental Planning Statement (EPS).  This is without prejudice to the environmental obligations being specified in the proposed project conditions.

The Project Description Statement (PDS) presented as part of the application has considered the environmental issues in a sufficient manner such that the preparation of an EPS would not add any new information and the Environment and Resources Authority has all the necessary information to determine the application, as concluded in the project screening according to Schedule IB of the same Regulations.
A detailed justification is presented below:

Reference Number: PA 06032/17 (EA 00028/17)
Location: Site at, Sant’ Antnin Treatment Plant (M’Scala), to Bulebel, Tas-Silġ and Misraħ Strejnu reservoirs (Żejtun), Ħabel L-Abjad, Żejtun, Malta
Proposal: The proposed distribution of second class water for public and industrial use from Sant’ Antnin treatment plant (M’Scala) to Bulebel, Tas-Silġ and Misraħ Strenju reservoirs (Żejtun).

The following potential environmental impacts were identified and mitigation measures proposed in the Project Description Statement (PDS). The PDS and the justification for exemption from carrying out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) were submitted to the Environment and Resources Authority on the 25th September, 2017 and on 21st November, 2017, respectively.

 
Impatti potenzjali
Potential Impact
Rimarki fuq miżura biex jittaffa l-impatt, eċċ.
Remarks on mitigation measures, etc.
Użu tal-art
Peress li l-proġett se jkun limitat għal tħaffir taħt l-art, l-iżvilupp mhux mistenni li jkollu impatt sinifikanti fuq l-użu tal-art tant li jimmerita Studju dwar l-Impatt Ambjentali.
Land use
Given that the proposal will be mainly limited to drilling below ground surface level, the development is not expected to have a significant impact on land use to the point of warranting an EIA study.
Ħolqien ta’ skart
L-ammont ta’ skart solidu li se jiġu ġġenerati mill-proġett waqt it-tħaffir mhux mistenni li jkun sinifikanti meta tqis in-natura tal-proġett. L-osservanza tar-regolamenti dwar il-ġestjoni tal-iskart u l-adozzjoni ta’ miżuri għall-aħjar prattika fir-rigward tal-ġestjoni tal-iskart operattiv għandhom jiżguraw tnaqqis xieraq tal-iskart.
Waste generation
The amount of solid waste that will be generated by the project during the drilling phase is not likely to be significant, considering the nature of the project. Compliance with waste management regulations and the adoption of best practice in relation to operational waste management will ensure adequate minimisation of waste.
Kwalità tal-arja, storbju
u vibrazzjonijiet
Waqt it-tħaffir u l-istallazzjoni tal-katusi, mhux mistenni li l-istorbju, il-vibrazzjonijiet, it-trabijiet u l-emissjonijiet ikunu sinifikanti.
Air quality, noise
and vibrations
The amount of emissions, dust, noise and vibrations, generated during drilling and insallation of pipes are not expected to be significant.
 
Notwithstanding the above, the Environment and Resources Authority reserves the right to request the applicant to submit additional information as may be necessary to inform the decision making process.
