Desalination Will Allow Israel to Replenish All of its Fresh Water Reservoirs

Top officials from the nations water company Mekorot told the Knesset’s Economics Committee that Israel’s expanded desalination program will eventually allow Israel to replenish all of its fresh water reservoirs.

With six plants currently in operation, Israel yields 600 million cubic meters of water per year from desalination. Israel currently has a shortage of 2 billion cubic meters of water.

The data presented to the committee stated that by 2013, 75% of Israeli households would be using desalinated water.
