Local residents and environmentalists in Chile are enjoying a prolonged New Year’s celebration, thanks to two major legal decisions that will protect the country’s free-flowing rivers. Chile’s justice system put a final stop to two controversial large hydroelectric dam developments in Chilean Patagonia: (1) Mediterráneo S.A.’s run-of-the-river project proposed on tributaries of the Puelo River near Cochamó; and (2) Energía Austral SpA’s three-dam power plant proposed on the Cuervo River in the Aysén region.
