What you can do:

Contact Fortis companies to demand that they release their secret information about the economics and safety of the dam


For three years, Fortis and its contractors have witheld important information about the safety and economics of the Chalillo dam project.  Two judges on London's Privy Counsel censured Fortis and the government for witholding information from the courts, but the court decided not to force Fortis to make the truth known.

You can help.  Call your nearest Fortis subsidiary and ask them what Fortis has to hide.  Ask them to make public:

  • What is happening at the dam site now? Fortis has not found an adequate source of granite to make concrete for the dam--causing delays and increased costs.
  • What is Fortis doing to stop the hundreds of workers at the site from illegal poaching of wildlife?

Fortis is also still witholding:

  • Their secret contract with the Chinese builder (which built the Three Gorges Dam)--how much is Fortis paying to build the dam?
  • Hydrology records at their existing dam.  These records would show that there is not enough water in the Macal River to produce even the small amount of electricity Fortis claims.
