The source of the pollution was not found in the streams

In light of these results, entry into the following streams may be dangerous until the resulting sampling results are normal and stable:



• Snir (Hasbani) - from the Roman bridge to the estuary to Jordan


• Jordan River from Yosef Bridge to Arik Bridge


• El Al River


• Zaki


• Nahal Zalmon - Flour Mill


• Nahal Kziv - Ein Haredlit



Except for Nahal Snir (Hasbani) where high values ​​were measured already at the point of entry into Israel, the Ministry of Environmental Protection did not find a known source of pollution in the streams.



The sampling for water quality in several streams in the north is carried out from a sample every two weeks, at fixed sampling points representing a waterfall, pond or section of the stream, using the inspectors of the Nature and Parks Authority.



The Ministries of Health and Environmental Protection continue to sample and monitor, and will update later as needed.
