Dead Sea Works’ unpaid water bills

The Water Law applies to all consumers, yet the Justice Ministry recently backtracked on enforcing a ruling from the Water Tribunal, citing a ‘lack of clarity in relation to the company’s obligations under the current franchise.

At Adam Teva V’Din, we decided to petition the High Court of Justice against the Water Authority’s failure to ‘collect water debts’, and our case will be heard in January, 2023. Our position is that DSW’s use of Dead Sea water in its minerals extraction business is directly responsible for at least 30 per cent of the measurable deterioration in water levels.

Water Tribunal ruled that the Water Law is applicable.
