Water probe committee to release final report today

March 23, 2010 12:54

The National Investigation Committee - Regarding the Water Crisis in Israel will present its final report to the Knesset State Control Committee and Supreme Court Dorit Beinisch on Wednesday.

Committee chairman Prof. Dan Bein and his two colleagues Profs. Yoram Avnimelech and Yoav Kislev spent the past year-and-a-half hearing testimonies from 115 witnesses ranging from government ministers and officials to experts to NGO representatives.

It is the first national investigative committee into the water economy.

However, a parliamentary investigative committee looked into the failures of the 90s in 2001. 

By law, the report cannot be released before it is presented to the committee and to Beinisch, so details about specific recommendations were unavailable Tuesday.

The committee members have said that their goal was to address the failures of the water economy over the last ten year and recommend strategies rather than to focus solely on one issue or strategy. As such, the final report will touch on a number of different relevant topics.
