A documentary produced by Prime Minister’s Office’s Minhal Ha’hasbare about Israel’s water diversion projects.
In Israel’s south, rivers are dammed and drillings are conducted in search for water, yet some settlements in the Negev Desert remain dependent on tankers that drive water to them. By diverting the Yarkon and Jordan rivers south, water companies Tahal and Mekorot plan to solve the problem of the settlements in the south. The film documents the establishment of a pumping station in the Yarkon springs, the production of water pipes in the Yuval Gad factory in Migdal Ashkelon, and the construction of the National Water Carrier in the country’s north. The film concludes with the inauguration ceremony of the Yarkon-Negev pipeline in Rosh HaAyin, with the participation of President of Israel Yitzhak Ben Zvi, Prime Minister Moshe Sharett, And Minister of Finance Levi Eshkol.
