Abstract:
Meni Ben-Hur shares his views on some of the changes, challenges and achievements of the water system in the Israeli agriculture. One of the possibilities to dispose of treated wastewater is its reuse in irrigation. This reuse of treated wastewater in Israeli agriculture has increased and expanded over a period of time. The master plan of the Water Authority estimates that the amounts of treated wastewater and freshwater to be allocated to agriculture in the year 2050 will be 909 and 395 mcm. This indicates that the main source of water for irrigation in agriculture in the country is treated wastewater. The challenge being faced is that the irrigation with treated wastewater can lead to leakage of pollution below the roots zone, such as nitrates that have been discovered in orchards with continuous irrigation with secondary treated wastewater at kibbutz Ramat Hakovesh and Mizrah, along with pesticide Atrazine discovered in the fields of kibbutz Maabarot.
