Could be an opportunity, as much as a problem, if the company can put together a good source of water and set up a dependable pumping system, to provide for the mine and to help supply locals with more and better water than they have now ... it'll take work and time and money, well spent though, cost of doing business - any mine in this day and age must improve the overall standard of living in its locale, there will be jobs of course, but if you can produce reliable water in dry country you'll widen your appeal considerably

There will be water not far away, it's the tropics, nineteen degrees of latitude ... only rain shadow of the various mountain ranges [there are several] can make an area dry - south and west of Romero there is a lake fed by multiple small river systems, has no outlet, it's 150ft below sea level, lowest point in the West Indies, Lago Enriquillo ... rain shadow can make a huge difference, in Chiapas which has seven basic biogeoclimatic zones with many subzones, there is at one point a range of hills that always have clouds at their tops, there are many plants that could not survive the briefest dry period and can be done harm by any direct sunlight, only a mile or two to the east begins one of the driest deserts in the country, only a narrow strip with a river through the middle but dry as a bone both sides [and is where culture of chia seeds originated] ... Japan has no shortage of precipitation, but one of our neighbours here who used to spend six-month periods there as a veterinarian was in a valley in the centre of the main island, he described it as very much like the Okanagan, only drier, ten inches rain per year if that ... just happens to be in deep rain shadow of high mountains all round, very deep and fertile volcanic soil that doesn't hold moisture, has aquifers way down, but most of the water they use comes from mountainside springs and can be pumped quite a distance ... place is famous for fruit, especially peaches i think it is, they have very old vineyards with the vines thinned out to maybe two dozen per acre and all supported on crosswires going both ways, trunks like fair sized trees ... they can see snow much of the year, can watch it snowing higher up, and stand in the dry to do so

It's an engineering problem, can be a solution to community relations ... management will have thought of this long ago, it's an obvious risk/opportunity, they will for sure have a plan, or at least a plan to make a plan, it would be interesting to hear their thoughts on the matter

This fellow Despradel comes across as quite likeable, speaks well, makes good sense in some ways, and is very leftie - it's all about distributing found wealth, without much attention to making it in the first place -

He was writing historical works from at least 1970 -

Here's a news piece from 02aug where he's talking about water situation in the valle de San Juan -
