Abstract

    The Feasibility Study on the Kra Canal : Commercial and Physical Aspects for environmental impact studied part was composed of project descriptive, are and condition, field survey and secondary data collection and impact assessment to interested parameter. The project used 5A line as model which open to Andaman Sea at Pak Bara District, Satun Province and open to The Gulf of Thailand at Singhanakorn District, Songkla Province. The distanced on land was 102 kilometers and was 120 kilometers included coastal area. The expected construction was estimated for 500,000 dead weight tonnage with 2 canals, and for 250,000 dead weight tonnage with 1 canal. Impact assessment studied method combined Simple Checklist, Descriptive Checklist and Scaling Checklist method at Construction and Operation Phase. The interesting parameter were Physical Parameter, Biological Parameter and Resources Utilization Parameter. For Andaman Sea the adverse impact level at 0, -1, -2 and -3 (from lowest to highest level) was found as 2, 2, 8 and 15 parameters from 32 parameters, and beneficial impact level at 1, 2 and 3 (from lowest to highest level) was found as 1 and 4 parameters from 32 parameters. For the Gulf of Thailand the adverse impact level at 0, -1, -2 and -3 (from lowest to highest level) was found as 3, 4, 5 and 15 parameters from 32 parameters, and beneficial impact level at 1, 2 and 3 (from lowest to highest level) was found as 1 and 4 parameters from 32 parameters.
