Israel – a global powerhouse for water too!

For more than 85 years, Mekorot has embodied the unique Israeli spirit: daring, sophistication, and innovation. The company, which can read the water consumption map and breach the limits of knowledge, capabilities, and water technologies, and to offer the latest integrative response for all water sectors, anytime, and under any conditions.

Mekorot’s achievements over the years have positioned it as one of the top water companies in the world and contributed to the consolidation of Israel’s standing as a water powerhouse, just as it is a high-tech powerhouse, defense powerhouse, and economic powerhouse and OECD member.

As a small country, located on the edge of the desert and with scarce water sources, which are under ongoing security threats, Israel’s standing as a water powerhouse should not be taken for granted.  It is a powerhouse that also stands out  in the way it deals with climate change and accelerated global warming. Thanks to the implementation of integrative engineering and technological solutions to maximize utilization of the water supply, Mekorot has succeeded in maintaining the stability of Israel’s water economy even during periods of prolonged extreme drought.
