Israel Will Build 6th Desal Plant To Address Continuing Drought


Seeking to fight the surging water crisis, the Israeli government has approved the construction of another desalination plant, this time in the Western Galilee. The new facility will join an unrivaled array of five desalination plants that already dot the country’s Mediterranean coastline. The Western Galilee was chosen to house the plant because the area has been plagued by a prolonged drought and its access to desalinated water from the other facilities is limited over topographical issues that restrict pumping water to it.
