Abstract:

The major watersheds are the Rio Negro, the Rio Uruguay, the Rio Santa Lucia, the Rio de la Plata and Lago Merin. Most of these basins have soils with low infiltration rates, which combined with a high intensity of rainfall leads to high surface runoff and, therefore, large fluctuations in river levels and flows. ...The Raigon aquifer, in the Santa Lucia river basin, has seen growth in the irrigation of vegetables, fruit and corn, as well as piped drinking water supplies for the population. The smaller Salto aquifer, in the northwest, is widely used for irrigation of crops, and the Mercedes aquifer on the west coast is not used at present for irrigation, but has good potential given its nature as a largely untapped resource. The main reservoirs are on the Rio Uruguay (Salto Grande, with -.- cu km of capacity) and the Rio Negro (Rincon del Bonete with -.- cu km, Baygorria with -.- cu km and Palmar with -.- cu km), with a total maximum capacity of --.- cu km. ...We therefore expect that out of the total ---mn cubic meters produced over ----, around -- will come from surface sources, representing around ---mn cubic meters.

...BMI View: Owing to its state ownership and comparatively limited project pipeline, we view Uruguay as one of the least open and least attractive markets in the region with regards to its water and sanitation sectors, and we do not anticipate any substantial changes to this status quo over the next five years. However we do see some potential for companies selling parts for networks and facilities as there is a small project pipeline to improve and expand OSE s water and sanitation infrastructure. ...However we do see some potential for companies selling parts for networks and facilities as there is a small project pipeline to improve and expand OSE s water and sanitation infrastructure. As yet government-led incentives for public-private partnerships (PPPs) and built-operate-transfer (BOT) ventures are limited Although there is some activity in the project pipeline, new developments will remain limited as investor interest is curtailed by economic uncertainty and limited private participation in the sector. We believe other regional markets offer greater opportunities to private water management and infrastructure groups, and this will continue to put investors off investing in Uruguay. ...As yet government-led incentives for public-private partnerships (PPPs) and built-operate-transfer (BOT) ventures are limited Although there is some activity in the project pipeline, new developments will remain limited as investor interest is curtailed by economic uncertainty and limited private participation in the sector.
