Two new public bathrooms that are being constructed on the shoreline of Eilat's Hof Hadati'im will be torn down and rebuilt 70 meters further inland, reports Municipal officials decided to tear down the half-built structures after the Ministry for Environmental Protection intervened and said the buildings were going up too close to the waterline. According to the report, development work recently began to create bathroom facilities at the beach as required by law, but "a mistake" led to the construction occurring too near the waterline. The ministry objected and the city decided to rectify the error before any further damage could be done to the shore. The report said that as well as preserving the shoreline environment, the relocation of the buildings would have the additional advantage of enabling their drains to be connected to the city's sewerage system and thus not emptying into the sea and harming the marine ecology.
