Some of the mitigation measures include: (i) install impermeable lining on or below soil; (iii) land contouring and slope stabilization; (iv) use only when necessary and switch to IPM; (v) use low-emission equipment; (vi) use low-noise equipment; (vii) OHS training; (viii) relocate activity to avoid such sensitive site; and (ix) compensate local loss by gain at other location.
