Uruguay Aims to Safeguard Water Quality in River Plate

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay will implement a program to monitor and protect water quality in the River Plate estuary, President Tabare Vazquez’s office said.

“The sustainable development envisioned for the River Plate and its seafront demands that the State, in its role as regulator of productive activities, incorporates into administration the necessary elements of environmental protection,” the government said in a statement posted on the presidential Web site.

The project will involve the ministries of Defense; Foreign Relations; Housing, Territorial Organization and Environment; and Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries.

The government is committed to safeguarding water quality, Environment Minister Eneida de Leon.

Uruguay is “making a qualitative leap in technical and inter-agency coordination to strengthen capacities, resources and strategies to manage the maritime coastal space,” national environment director Alejandro Nario said.
