(Worthy News) – The Water Authority announced Sunday that even if the coming winter brings average precipitation, or even above average, the hydrological drought will continue.
They said that the Kinneret is drying up at a rapid pace and approaching its black line. They added that an accurate weather forecast for the coming year will be available next month.
The Water Authority said that the deficit in Israel’s natural water reserves, after five consecutive drought years, is substantial. The Authority said that even given one average rainy year and the continued cessation of pumping from the Sea of Galilee to the national water carrier, the sea will remain below the lower red line by the end of next winter.
