Uruguayan government asks for peace to face water crisis

Montevideo, May 17 (Prensa Latina) The Uruguayan Government asked the population to remain calm to face the water crisis the country is going through, according to statements made by the Presidency's Secretary Álvaro Delgado.

The high official assured that the water supply will be maintained until the rainy season starts. He announced new measures to face the “worst water deficit since records began to be kept 74 years ago.”

Along with the ministers of Public Health, Social Development, and Environment, Delgado emphasized that the water supplied by the state-owned company Obras Sanitarias del Estado (OSE) “is fit for human consumption and all essential aspects of life.”

He announced the construction of a dam next week to ensure the stability of Paso Severino dam, the leading source of drinking water supply to Montevideo, whose water level is now reduced.
