Demand Not to Raise Price of Treated Wastewater


The Water Employees Association together with the Israel Farmer's Federation have turned to the Water Authority, claiming that by raising the prices of treated wastewater is in violation of Pargraph 12 of the Water Law, which permits the Authority to determine water prices based on various parameters, including consumer ability to pay.

"The increase in prices by the Water Authority, where the consumer's ability to pay is not taken into consideration as prescribed by the law, is a violation of the government's obligation, making their price determination invalid," the applicants stated.
