The water level of Lake Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) has risen by two centimeters since the beginning of November.
However, that amount isn’t very much, compared to the multi-year average of four centimeters in the same period, according to Israel’s Water Authority.
As of Nov. 22, the level of the lake was 214.66 meters below sea level, well below the lower red line of 213 meters below sea level, below which there is damage to the ecological balance and water quality. Once the level of the lake reaches that point, it is forbidden to pump or use water from the Kinneret.
At present, the water level is just 0.21 meters higher than the historic lowest water level ever measured in the Kinneret.
