Israel Cuts Water Prices by 10% From January 1

Israel will cut water prices by 10 percent at the start of 2015, the Infrastructure, Energy and Water Ministry said today.

The reduction will bring the total decline in water prices in the past year to more than 15 percent, the ministry said in an e-mailed statement.

The price cut is partly the result of better efficiency in the water companies, the ministry said. Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Silvan Shalom said it’s “part of a wider decrease” expected in the coming year.
