The government on Sunday approved the budgeting of NIS 845 million for the rehabilitation of the Dead Sea over the next five years.

The plan will include renovations to tourist infrastructure at the Hamei Zohar and Ein Bokek areas, as well as a number of locations that have been damaged by rising water in the Dead Sea’s southern basin in recent years (the largely disconnected northern basin is shrinking). The Tourism Ministry said that the work will also include rehabilitating the parks and nature areas that have been hurt by the changes in the level of the Dead Sea.
