    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) –The Diquís hydroelectric project to be built in the south of the country, will not affect the four archaeological sites where the new pre-Columbian areas were declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

    “This declaration does not affect the project. This is because none of the archaeological sites that were declared by UNESCO are within the areas of influence,” confirmed Luis Pacheco, manager of the Costa Rican Electricity Institute of Electricity (ICE).

    The institution has also started with the construction of the plant, but still do not have all the feasibility studies, so it is not certain that the ICE will continue with the build.

    Although this project does not interfere with archaeological sites, as planned, some indigenous territories adjacent to, but not near the communities where the population lives could be affected, and this has been one of the biggest obstacles the project, sparking opposition.
