In an article in the Jerusalem Post, Zalul’s Deputy Director Ezer Fischler speaks out about the negligence of Israeli municipalities when it comes to maintaining their sewage systems:

“They don’t see sewage as the resource that it is. Treated sewage water becomes water for agriculture. They say, ‘So what? It’s just sewage,’ and let leaks go on too long,” he said.

It’s not just the Tel Aviv area that suffers from closed beaches and polluted streams because of the river of sewage. All up and down the coast, streams are polluted by sewage, Fischler said.
