      Kinneret Fell 30 CM in July

      The Kinneret's level fell by about 30 centimeters in July, and now stands at 212.855 meters below sea level. The level remained stable in April and May, as runoff from winter snows in the north continued to fill the lake. The Kinneret's level fell a total of 50 centimeters in June and July, after climbing 96 centimeters in February and March.

      Currently an additional 3.57 meters of water is needed in order to get the Kinneret up to its maximum level.
