The Mekorot National Water Company has opened a new line to add the regions of Judea and Samaria to Israel’s national water system.
Also, a sophisticated new pumping station in the Barkan Industrial Park will be able to transfer the water further into eastern Samaria and mountain communities.
“Connecting the water infrastructure in Judea and Samaria to the national water system constitutes the application of de facto sovereignty,” said Yossi Dagan, head of the Samaria Regional Council. “We have taken another important step to be part of the State of Israel, and not a stepson. There used to be detachments and tankers; today we are going about it in a systematic way and connecting the water infrastructure of Judea and Samaria to the national water system.”
