From Your Toilet to the River: The Lachish Story.

August 30, 2007

 

JPost - August 30, 2007 - Lachish

Out today in the Jerusalem Post: Recent tests by Zalul show that the Ashkelon Municipality is still dumping raw sewage directly into the river, despite them saying the contrary. Whereas pollution standards dictate that the highest recommend level of fecal coliform found in water should be 200 milligrams per liter, testing showed that the water of the Lachish had up to 7.8 million milligrams per liter.To put it simply: If you live in Ashdod, the things you flush down your toilet are the things you see/smell/taste in your river. Lovely.
