Dams tend to have both positive and negative social, economic and environmental impacts in their area of influence. This article focuses on the social impacts, especially those related to the housing of the relocated population in the San Roque Gonzalez de Santa Cruz neighborhood, also known as the Arroyo Pora Housing Complex, located in the municipality of Cambyreta (Paraguay), 20 years after the first wave of relocations (1999). The objective of the study is to describe the current situation of these housing units, considering aspects such as housing tenure, conformity, modifications and maintenance, to mention some variables, according to the passage of time. For this purpose, it uses a semi-structured survey to a sample of the aforementioned population. The study found that the displaced population had to adapt the house given to them for relocation purposes to their needs, mainly due to an increase in the population per family unit. Additionally, during this research new owners were identified, as well as caretakers and tenants, who settled after the relocation period, resulting in a loss of homogeneity of the population. These situations could indicate that the recommendations related to the management of involuntary resettlement processes were not taken into account in this case.
