MK Dov Henin (Hadash) meanwhile criticized the government for not making better use of the deluge of rainwater barreling into the country. The Knesset, he explained, should pass his proposed Rainwater Collection bill that would allow for rainwater storage units.

"A lot of water flows into the sea now – then they tell us there is no water, and that we have to pay the price," Henin said.

"I will continue to fight for the separation of sewage and drainage systems, and will continue to fight for rainwater storage systems – that will enable the collection of a greater portion of rainwater by inserting them into the ground and using them."
