Relatively salt free water has been found near the world’s saltiest sea, it was announced here today. It was found at a depth of more than 1,200 feet on the south shore of the Dead Sea near the Potash works. The find is expected to yield about 600 cubic meters per hour for use in the potash plant. Experts said it was the least salty water source ever found in the region.
