Action is part of the Floresta Farm TAC, which deals with the socio-environmental impacts resulting from the recovery works in Candonga
The municipality of Rio Doce (MG) received an ambulance as part of the commitments assumed in the Floresta Farm Conduct Adjustment Term, signed between the Renova Foundation and the State Secretariat of Environment and Sustainable Development of Minas Gerais (Semad). The delivery took place on December 26th.
The Floresta Farm TAC enables the continuity of maintenance, control and environmental management activities at the Floresta Farm, an area acquired by the Renova Foundation to receive part of the tailings accumulated in the Risoleta Neves Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP) reservoir, known as Candonga, in Rio Doce. The sediments come from the Fundao dam, which collapsed on November 5, 2015.
The TAC also provides for compliance with mitigating and compensatory measures for the socio-environmental impacts resulting from the HHP’s recovery works.
For Sandro Ribeiro, Renova’s Projects and Works specialist, the compensatory measures provided for in the TAC will provide a better quality of life for the population of Rio Doce. “The areas of health, education and security will receive structural works that will help the municipality to provide a better service to the population,” he says.
In addition to the delivery of the ambulance to the municipality, the following actions are planned:
– Paving of the access road to the Santana do Deserto community;
– Construction of a Physiotherapy Center;
– Construction of a Military Police Quarter;
– Funding of the revision of the Rio Doce Master Plan;
– Recovery of urban and rural roads;
– Implementation of a Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in the district of Santana do Deserto;
– Selective collection in municipal and state public schools in the municipal of Rio Doce;
– Automation of the water pumping system and adjustments to the electrical system of the pump stations that already exist in the municipality of Rio Doce;
– Project for recovery and revitalization of the Lajes Stream Basin.
