Parana River  - water falls to record low levels, Argentina declares emergency

by The Editorial Team

July 27, 2021

                            

 

Argentina declared a six-month state of emergency for the Parana River, as it has fallen to its lowest level in 77 years.

 

 

 

 

More specifically, water flow in the river in June was at 6,190 cu m per second, which is just over half of the 11,823 cu m second recorded in June 2019.

 

Commenting on the situation, the Argentinian government said that the magnitude of the emergency requires that all areas of the national government join forces to mitigate this hydrological phenomenon in the areas affected.

Currently, the Parana River transports about 80% of Argentinas agricultural exports. For this reason, the water emergency is expected to delay shipments of soy, corn, wheat and other grains.

                   

Furthermore, the low water level is impacting hydroelectric power generation. Therefore, the government has authorised greater fuel imports for thermoelectric plants, also mandating the prioritisation of fuel cargoes over other shipments on the river.
