Israel Aiding Uruguay

Israel, which is solving its own serious water problems, has become one of the principal developers of water resources in other countries with similar problems. The Tahal Co., which plans water development and distribution projects, has just singed a $500,000 contract with the Uruguayan government, its general director, A. Weiner, reported today. He also reported that the World Bank has praised the work carried out by Tahal in the Adana district of Turkey which the World Bank financed. The Bank said the development of water resources in that region was the best in which it has ever invested.
