Would the offshore pipeline route affect the activities of fishing industries and contribute to marine pollution?
The offshore route of the pipeline avoids sensitive fisheries ecosystems. WAPCo will continue to remain engaged with all communities along the pipeline right-of-way and in coastal areas surrounding pipeline landfalls for several years. This affords community members, including fishermen, ready lines of communication to raise any concerns about project impacts. Moreover, the environmental monitoring plan for WAGP includes assessment of fishery and livelihood impacts, which will be undertaken by independent consultants. Bank supervision and the independent expert panel will have these issues on their agenda as well.
