Mekorot – the National Water Carrier
The main visitor center of Israel’s water carrier helps visitors understand that having good quality water available in their faucets is not something that should be taken for granted. The visitor center includes a series of beautifully designed spaces, and a range of displays revealing the complex processes that the water goes through, from its different sources until it reaches the faucet. The center was established at the Eshkol site, and offers a rare glimpse into the only water purification plant of its kind in Israel, and the fourth-largest in the world.
