Palestinians Won’t Cooperate with Israel on Sewage Treatment– Oded Revivi (Times of Israel)
The Oslo Accords required the Palestinian Authority to build a system of wastewater treatment plants to prevent pollution of the groundwater.
The EU transferred funds to the Palestinians for the construction of the wastewater treatment system, but, according to reports in the media, these funds never reached their destination.
A few months ago, as the mayor of Efrat, I approached a number of Arab leaders who live near Efrat and offered to connect their sewage pipes to Efrat’s wastewater purification plant.
They returned with a negative response: The extremists told them that “they would not allow Arab wastewater to flow next to Jewish wastewater.”
