Uruguay Faces a Severe Historic Drought

FLORIDA, URUGUAY - JULY 01: Aerial view of a bridge that emerged after 30 years under water of the Santa Lucia river at Paso Severino reservoir on July 01, 2023 in Florida, Uruguay. 'La Niña' climatic phenomenon has brought Uruguay to a water emergency; although the mixing of fresh water with salt water helped to expand reserves, the Paso Severino reservoir (which supplies 60% of the population) is now below 2.5% of its capacity. While the Government is working on the construction of a temporary reservoir on the San José River, the President of Uruguay, Luis Lacalle Pou, admitted that "if it does not rain, the water will not be drinkable for a period of time".
