Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel, and it is located in the middle of the country. In addition to the large number of tourists visiting this historical city annually, Jerusalem also has a population of more than 900,000 people, and in 1994, the yearly drinking water consumption was approximately 60M cubic meters; 2,120 cubic feet. In order to meet the future demand of a rapidly growing population, as well as overcome the challenges posed by an ageing infrastructure, Mekorot (the Israeli national water company) decided to implement a new pipeline system. The objective was to deliver water from the national aqueduct and deep wells near the coastline to Jerusalem.
