Weekly News Update on the Americas, 2 August 1998. Chile's National Indigenous Development Council (CONADI) said that the National Electricity Company (ENDESA) must stop work on its $250 million Ralco dam on the Biobio river or face legal action by indigenous groups. The dam project will flood native Pehuenche lands, displacing 90 Pehuenche families from their homes. ENDESA has sought to induce the families to exchange their property for other land acquired by the company.
