Yesterday Zalul took a trip up the coast to the Alexander River, Beit Yanai Beach, Gesher Tsavim (Turtle Bridge), and Kfar Veetkin. We had heard that this past weekend beachgoers had noticed dead fish, as well as other reasons to cast suspicion that there could be problems with the water in the area of Beit Yanai Beach, where the Alexander River meets the Mediterranean Sea.
However, on our tiyul the Mediterranean didn’t appear to have any dead fish, murky water color, or strange odors. People were out kitesurfing as usual and the sea looked as it normally does. Nevertheless, the Alexander River was not looking its best.
It is not clear what the quality of the water is. Check out the pictures to see how it looks to you.
