    Description:  As the population of the nearby city grew, water storage and treatment facilities struggled to keep up. The result was increased pollution to the Rio Chili river. Freeport is a member of the local water users committee and addressed stakeholders concerns by building two dams, a potable water plant, and a waste water treatment facility. This in turn allowed the mine to gain a contract for a secure water source and increased local relations.
