An inter-ministerial team will look into the potential effects on weaker segments of the population as a result of a hike in water prices set for next month, it was agreed on Sunday. At the request of Welfare and Social Affairs Minister Isaac Herzog, the team will take a week to examine the ramifications of the price hike. Water prices are set to rise in 2010 in two stages by about 40 percent.
