PELEG HAGALIL - The Regional Water & Sewage Company Ltd.

MisstowIsrael, a water scarce country, had embarked on a national campaign to develop all its water resources and to integrate into water resources management strategy - recommends a comprehensive water conservation and efficient use of water by all users. This strategy stressed that treated wastewater is a valuable water resource and focused on the total wastewater treatment and reuse as a national objective, and the exchange of the treated effluent with the farmers' fresh water allocations. In the year 2001 the Israeli parliament passed the Water and Sewage Corporation Law. Peleg HaGalil is a statuotric organization under the supervision of Water Authority and the Water Bureau, to privatize the water and sewage infrastructures.

"Peleg HaGalil" is the central independent corporation in Eastern Galilee, although it is regulated by the Water Authority, which was established in 2008 to operate and manage all water and sewage infrastructure systems.  This cooperation includes a department for water systems management, and it supervises local water and sewage plants. Such an organisation is the necessary solution to solve the serious sewage treatment problems in the Galilee today, and can also be responsible for R&D and future solutions for wastewater treatments, as well as develop equipment and processes for the market. Peleg Hagalil Corporation supplies water to 100,000 residents of Safed; Hatzor Haglilit; Rosh Pina; Gush Halav; Tuba-Zangaria; Sajur; Magar; Yesod Hama'ala; Beit Jan; Rama; Hurfaish; Ilabun and Fasuta.

Its expertise derives from a dedicated team of employees and an innovative approach to support all the 13 municipalities scattered in Eastern-Galilee, Israel. The supplier of Peleg HaGalil water is Mekorot - the National Water Company, which has developed cutting-edge processes that have succeeded in maximizing the utilization of Israel’s water resources, automating its treatment and delivering it to domestic, industrial and agricultural users.  Peleg HaGalil is supplying the water to over 100,000 residents in the 13 municipalities, some small villages and some large towns, all in the mountainous region of the Galilee.
