ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDY OF HYDROELECTRIC DEVELOPMENTS IN GOUVÃES, ALTO TÂMEGA AND DAIVÕES

- The Environmental Impact Study (EIS) concerning four hydroelectric developments in the Tâmega river basin, two of them located on the river Tâmega, one on the river Beça and another one on the river Torno (both tributaries of Tâmega), as well as the corresponding transmission line, includes the following activities:
   • Analysis and characterisation of the reference situation in the area affected by the construction of the projects regarding the different relevant aspects, in particular climate, water quality and hydrology, ecology, socioeconomics, air quality, sound environment, architectural and archaeological heritage, land use and spatial planning;
   • Determination and assessment of environmental impacts regarding these environmental aspects, resulting from the implementation of the project (in the construction, operation and decommissioning phases);
   • Proposal of mitigation measures to reduce the significance of identified impacts;
   • Proposal of compensatory measures;
   • Proposal of monitoring programmes in the various environmental aspects analysed;
