What is being done about the water crisis in Israel?

Israel has two operating desalinization plants in Ashkelon and Palmahim, and a third plant, to be located in Hadera, is scheduled to open in about two years.

The Water Authority also plans on drilling for groundwater in the Hula area and East Galilee, and then funneling it to the Kinneret and the National Water Carrier, respectively.

Israel continually encourages water conservation, has recently banned watering public and private gardens, and is increasing waste-water recycling.

Have more questions about the rivers, seas, or beaches in Israel?
