Last winter was exceptionally dry, but we still have water in our pipes.

In Jerusalem, classified as socioeconomic Cluster 3, the residents consume an average of 38 cubic meters of water per capita each year, much less than Tel Aviv, where on average the per-capita consumption of water is 66 cubic meters (Tel Aviv is in Cluster 8), and less than Haifa, where annual per capita consumption of water is 45 cubic meters (Haifa is in Cluster 7). Per-capita water consumption in Jerusalem is low compared to most local authorities in the Jerusalem environs, and higher than only Beitar Illit (36 cubic meters per capita) and Modi’in Illit (35 cubic meters), both of which are in Cluster 1. The highest rate of water consumption in the Jerusalem area is in Har Adar (Cluster 9) where the rate is 91 cubic meters annually.
