Israel is facing its most severe water shortage in nearly a century. Seven consecutive years of drought have deprived its natural water sources of sufficient replenishment, while a growing population and rising standard of living have led to a sharp increase in consumption. There is 75% less water available today than just 20 years ago, but an additional two million people to share the diminishing supply.
By the year 2020, Israel’s population is expected to increase by three million people and the country will require nearly another 80 billion gallons of drinking water. As the supply continues to dwindle, where will this extra water come from?
