Seawater Supplies to Manage Water Resources Risks & Opportunities in Northern Chile (Antofagasta)

Since 2014 SMI-CWiMI has conducted a series of small projects on optimising seawater supply to mines in the north (second region) of Chile. The overall objective is to identify the seawater supply routes and risk management options (conjunctive use, infrastructure sharing, contract design, complementary water efficiency options) to maximise regional development opportunity and minimise risk to investors.

This is ongoing work in collaboration with SMI-ICE-Chile.
