Jerusalem Health Dep’t Approves Chlorinating Plant for New Water System

Download PDF for this date

The Municipal Health Department has given its long-awaited approval to plans for constructing a chlorinating plant to purify the water in Jerusalem’s new water supply system.

The action follows the connecting of the newly constructed pipe lines between the Ras-el-Ain watershed and the 10,000,000 gallon Ramoma reservoir. For the first time in history Jerusalem will now have an adequate water supply.

A meeting of the Municipal Council was called for Thursday to decide on the price and distribution of the water.
