We are Mekorot
Mekorot has conveyed water, the source of life for more than 80 years
For more than 80 years, Mekorot has embodied the unique Israeli spirit: daring, sophistication, and innovation in the face of the complex challenges of the Israeli water economy. These challenges are derived from the country’s location on the edge of the desert and lean sources of water, which face constant threats.
We are the National Water Company of Israel.
Everything that Mekorot does is for the Israeli people: the family at home, the farmer in the field, the worker in industry. We understand the needs of each of them and plan and design Israel’s water map accordingly, putting Israel on the global water map.
We do this by constantly pushing the limits of knowledge and expanding the capabilities of water technologies. We turn every risk into a possibility and every challenge into an opportunity in order to always ensure an available and reliable supply of high-quality water.
One of the best water companies in the world. Fact!
Mekorot’s achievements in the water economy have positioned us as one of the world’s leading water companies and have helped establish Israel as a water powerhouse in the OECD.
The Global Water Intelligence (GWI) 2020 ranks the Israeli water economy fourth in the world! The prestigious organization states that Israel is first in the world in water efficiency, because of an annual water loss rate of less than 3%, compared with an OECD average of 15%. Israel also stands out in infrastructures, research, professional knowledge, and the handling of water resources.
Neither this achievement nor Israel’s success in coping with climate change and global warming, which jeopardize the future of water sources worldwide, should be taken for granted.
