Haifa will be the second city in Palestine to have a modern water supply system like that of Jerusalem.

A report on the question of the Haifa water supply was presented to the Government some time ago by Mr. Lees Director of Public Works. The conclusion was reached, after investigations, that the most ample sources were the El Kabari springs, north of Acre The cost of installing this supply was estimated at £E120,000. The District Commissioner approved the plan and it was suggested that a foreign company be invited to undertake the work. The cost, it was also proposed, should be covered by a loan the Government would grant the Municipality.

The matter is now before the Government and it is hoped that the whole plan will shortly be realized.
