SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Chile's Supreme Court has ruled against the Bocamina thermoelectric complex, but says environmental authorities should decide if operations can continue.

The court sided with local fishermen who say the plant owned by energy company Endesa Chile has polluted their community. In December, an appeals court halted the 350 megawatt Bocamina II part of the complex, citing an impact on fishermen's livelihood.

Friday's ruling says the plants can continue to operated only if they don't threaten or harm ocean life.
