Chile is considered a privileged country in terms of water resources, with 101 hydrographic basins containing 1,251 rivers and 12,784 bodies of water, including lakes and lagoons. In addition, there are 24,114 glaciers, which can contribute to the runoff flow during dry periods. Renewable water resources per capita are 51,218 m3/person/year. However, due to the water heterogeneity of the country, the average is below 500 m3/person/year from the Metropolitan Region to the north, above 7,000 m3/person/year in the regions of O’Higgins to the south and 2,950.168 m3/person/year in the Aysén Region. Since water sources in Chile have been scarce since 1999, work has been done on desalinating seawater, reaching an estimated volume of 0.065 km3/year.
