English: The Hydroelectric Power Station Jasyretâ-Apipé (from Guaraní jasy retâ, “country of the moon”) is a hydroelectric plant built over the waterfalls of Jasyretâ-Apipé in the Paraná River, between the Argentine Province of Corrientes and the Paraguayan department of Misiones. The dam is named for Yacyretâ Island just upstream, much of which the dam submerged. The word “Yacyreta” is a misspelling of the original word, the Guaraní term Jasyretâ. .
