pumping, most of the water that flowed in Israel
’s freshwater streams was used by the natural forces alone. The KKL-JNF sees
the supply of quality water to nature as a “settling of accounts” with
establishment of reservoirs and the diversion of water to streams are among the
required activities for restoring the flow to perennial streams.
As such, the KKL-JNF has been given the opportunity to stipulate the
diversion of some of the water held in the reservoirs it established to streams.
The building of reservoirs should therefore be seen as an infrastructure
for the future supply of water to streams that will serve generations to come.
foundation for any master plan for freshwater streams must be a policy that
perceives restoration progressing independently via natural processes, with
minimal human intervention. At the same time, in light of the population density
in areas adjacent to streams, and the constant human impact on streams, ongoing
management, monitoring, and evaluation must be part of any rehabilitation plan.
The KKL-JNF will take on these activities, together with the objective of
reducing to a minimum human intervention in maintenance, in order to reduce the
burden on future generations and for the sake of the long-term health of
