Water prices to increase by 40%

Posted By admin On November 13, 2009 @ 3:10 pm In economy | 1 Comment

The government has agreed to approve 40% hike in water prices, but compromised a bit on its timing: the increase will now take place gradually over half a year.

This way, Jewish consumers will foot the bill for the kibbutzim and the Arabs. While kibbutzim receive highly subsidized water [1], Arabs steal [2] it for free.

The price increase won’t significantly decrease water consumption because both Israeli consumers and kibbutzim use water with extreme efficiency.
