Very helpful clear reporting of important events for Chile and the rest of the world. Thanks.

Thank you. I might have missed it in my slightly diminished access but what are the sources that fill the reservoir that is being tapped into. Rain, snow? And how are those sources doing? Is there a drought, generally? Just let me know if you wrote about this earlier and point me too it. Is there increased farming now? You said this but how much has it increased and how quickly? Oh, and is there regulation other than the "buying into" that you mentioned earlier?

I will add a post with the questions
They stem from living in FLA for so long

Paul A. Tamburello, Jr. aka pt at large

Great questions. I'll try to answer them in posts to follow.

Paul Sinopoli

Fascinating stuff Paul - we take so much for granted here.

In Florida there were/are questions of water management, contamination of the aquifer, over development, draining and mismanagement of the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee. Rivers, lakes, springs, and sinkholes abound. The source for replenishment is limited to rain unlike other areas. This link says more about the situation: http://fcit.usf.edu/florida/lessons/water/water.htm
I am no expert but I do care about sustainability.
Thank you again for the post and telling us about what is happening in Chile.
