Abstract: Debt- and corruption-ridden, the Yacyreta hydroelectric dam project between Paraguay and Argentina is running under capacity. To bring its water to the level where it would run at originally projected levels of production, however, would cause social and ecological destruction, say environmentalists. In the meantime, Paraguayan President Nicanor Duarte Frutos is seeking the investigation and prosecution of former heads of the project and trying to work with Argentine President Nestor Kirchner to get "coherence" regarding how the two countries will handle the dam's massive debts.
