The surface of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) has begun to fall. The lake hit what is expected to be its high for the year last week, at 209 meters and 86 centimeters below sea level.
The waters will now drop through the summer, until the beginning of the next rainy season.
Since last Tuesday the surface of the lake has dropped by one centimeter. It remains three meters and 13 centimeters above the “red line” below which it may be dangerous to continue drawing water.
The Kinneret is Israel’s largest single source of fresh water.
