Abstract
In November 2004, Valdivia Cellulose Pulp Plant started operating in San Pedro de la Mariquina, 56 kilometers north-west of Valdivia in southern Chile. A few months later a decrease in the population of the Black Necked Swans (Cygnus melancoryphus) in the Carlos Anwandter Sanctuary, near the discharging point of the mill, was discovered. The aim of the thesis was to evaluate three alternative discharging points from Valdivia Cellulose Pulp Plant: Cruces River, San Pedro River and Mehuin near the Pacific Ocean. The evaluation was made with respect to ecological, social and economical values. A Bayesian Belief Network System (BN) was chosen as a method and the information was based on interviews with stakeholders, experts and the general... (More)

The evaluation was made with respect to ecological, social and economical values. A Bayesian Belief Network System (BN) was chosen as a method and the information was based on interviews with stakeholders, experts and the general public. The resulting BN indicated that the most suitable discharging point would be Mehuin near the Pacific Ocean. (Less)
