Gaza water confined and contaminated

Gaza water confined and contaminated


The world should pay more attention to the dire water situation in the Gaza Strip. As much as 95% of Gaza's water from its only accessible water source–the Coastal Aquifer–is now contaminated and unfit for human consumption.


Overpopulation leads to over-pumping, and the Israeli government draws an inequitable amount of water from the aquifer, both of which accelerate contamination.


This leads to alarmingly high levels of water-related illness among Gazans.
