Sea to Home: Israel’s desalination plants addressing water scarcity

Without the desalination plants, Israel wouldn’t have access to drinkable water due to a lack of natural resources

i24News reports that Israel maintains the world’s highest per capita usage of desalinated water, thanks to desalination plants like in Hadera in the country’s north, which pumps water from the Mediterranean Sea and makes it drinkable 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Some 75 percent of water consumed in Israel comes directly from the Mediterranean. Without desalination plants, Israel wouldn’t have access to drinkable water due to a lack of natural resources, according to David Muhlgay, CEO of Omis Water Ltd and head of the Hadera “mega-factory.”
