The major threat in the upper and middle Paraná basin is degradation in the quality of the basin's water resources, due to the disposal of untreated domestic and industrial effluents. The Paraná basin has the highest urban-industrial density in the inner country. The presence of herbicides and fungicides used in farming and cattle-rearing development may also become a considerable source of pollution. The construction of Itaipu, Rosana and Taquaracu hydroelectric power plants has attracted more people to the region to work (Diegues 1994).
