Mekorot is one of the world’s most technologically advanced water companies. Seventy years of innovation in the face of Israel’s significant environmental and security challenges have made Mekorot a world leader in desalination, water reclamation, water project engineering, water safety and water quality. Through continual research, experimentation and field innovation, Mekorot provides a steady flow of clean water to a rapidly growing population despite the region’s limited freshwater resources, arid climate and difficult geopolitical realities. Mekorot’s uniqueness as a water utility lies in its unparalleled experience, know-how, technologies and innovative processes for the management, operation and treatment of all types of water resources, whether surface water, underground water, brackish water, seawater or effluents.
This Month, December 2009, Mekorot marks the 20th anniversary of "The Third Pipeline Enterprise" – The “Shafdan” Reclamation Project. It is one of the most ambitious, important and advanced plants of its type not only in the country but in the world.
