A sad, sad state of affairs to say the least! it is [sic] for governments to destroy nature as this dam will do. The other [sic] part about this is there ISN'T ENOUGH WATER ANYWAYS!!!!!!!!
Ecuador is in a drought and has been for several years! Be prepared for blackouts again this year starting in November like last year!
The only thing this dam will do is destroy a beautiful ecosystem and the San Rafael Dam with it!
