Uruguay Faces a Severe Historic Drought

MONTEVIDEO, URUGUAY - JULY 06: Detail of a water heater at a repair shop as a demand in their repairs surges due to the high salinity in the tap water which causes damages to the heaters on July 06, 2023 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The country faces its worst drought in 100 years. The government implemented an emergency measure to mix reservoir water with salted water from further downstream of the Santa Lucia river. Tap water is barely drinkable due to its salinity. Rains from July 4th resulted in an increase in the reserves in the Paso Severino dam (which supplies 60% of the population), however it continues to be at below 2% capacity.
