Anyone who lives in an area near the sea but still suffers from water shortages is familiar with the old expression “water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink.”

The town of Kfar Saba holds the first pilot for a Bio-Filter facility in Israel: a public garden designed to absorb rainwater, fill and purify underground reservoirs. As constructions are on-going, four more cities are competing for the construction of the next two facilities.

As a reminder, more Israeli towns, such as Rishon-Letzion, have begun construction on local reservoirs intended for the rehabilitation of underground reservoirs and usage through municipal desalination plants.
