The Water Industry in a State of Emergency

The Water Industry in a State of Emergency

As the national water company, Mekorot is always prepared for any emergency situation in Israel. In such a situation, the company will be the executive arm of the Water Authority and will be required to ensure a regular water supply to the consumer, including for essential facilities and livestock. The supply of water will be done according to the criteria determined for various emergency situations in the water and sewage sectors. In order to meet its obligations, a special unit has been established at Mekorot for times of emergency and for emergency situations (Emergency Services). This unit constitutes Mekorot’s core permanent staff for preparing the system for emergency events.

In such cases, a warning is automatically transmitted to the control room, and it is dealt with immediately. From a forward-looking perspective, and against the backdrop of the political considerations in the Middle East, Mekorot will continue investing its efforts and resources in constant development and improvement, in order to ensure the reliable supply of the best quality water for all residents of the State of Israel, in any situation.
