Mekorot to Turn Off Negev Farmers' Water Monday


The Water Authority instructed the Mekorot national water company, Sunday, to disconnect Negev farmers, Monday morning at 10:00, because of outstanding debts.

The farmers intend to file a suit against the authority because of what they call "the illegality of the debt". The farmers claim they paid all the debts they were supposed to pay and what the Water Authority is demanding from them is not their own debt.
