By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Israel Water Authority just agreed to supply Gaza with electricity to run their two sewage treatment plants.
The agreement between the Water Authority and the Gaza Electricity Distribution Company is in stages. First, three megawatts for the sewage treatment center in Northern Gaza and then, later on, a treatment center in Southern Gaza will get fueled.
The new centers are part of a $75 million project funded by the World Bank and other donor countries. It should be completed in March.
Israel is also providing 1.5 mega watts of electricity for a $40 million desalination plant that is being built by the EU.
Israel is in a pickle. Despite Hamas' constant state of war, it is in Israel's best interest to clean up the sewage of Gaza. Gaza sewage has been dumping into the Mediterranean Sea polluting Israel's beaches and contaminating the water sources. It's a serious problem and has been going on for way too long.
