Water for Israel

Israel has three water sources: Lake Kinneret, the Mountain Aquifer and the Coastal Aquifer. Israel also has KKL-JNF. KKL-JNF gathers water, drop by drop, from Negev and Galilee flash floods, and from wastewater treatment facilities throughout the country, to enrich Israel’s water economy by a total of 260 million cubic meters.

Israel has three water sources: Lake Kinneret, the Mountain Aquifer and the Coastal Aquifer. It also has KKL-JNF, which has been working for many years to support the Israeli water economy through building and developing alternative water sources.

KKL-JNF has been building reservoirs for several years. They benefit the water systems, the environment, agriculture and the economy in the most practical ways.

During recent years, Israel's water crisis has been gradually worsening. KKL-JNF has initiated several far-reaching projects to make a difference.
 

River Rehabilitation

River Rehabilitation

The rivers of Israel have largely dried up due to over-pumping, and the few rivers in Israel with water flowing in them throughout the year are mostly contaminated. Curbing this deterioration process is one of the major environmental challenges facing Israel today.

Water in the Desert - Limans in the Negev

The Negev is characterized by a remarkable landscape feature known as “limans,” which are mainly to be found adjacent to roads and railway tracks. These earthen constructions collect floodwater by damming a gully or streambed.

Walkathon - Walk for Water

The Walkathon is an annual KKL-JNF initiative where international missions become acquainted with Israel by foot, in a challenging and especially meaningful trek to raise funds each year for a different project to support Israel's water economy.
