Sampling the Water Quality

The Yarkon River Authority conducts regular sampling of the different river sections according to the protocol for monitoring the quality of water for boating in the Yarkon River.

This procedure refers to the quality of water in the Yarkon only in the context of monitoring boating. It is based on testing of microbial criteria determined by an interoffice panel of scientific experts which has discussed this issue and turned in its findings (further specification in the link below the sample results). The principles of this procedure are based on the Ministry of Health’s sampling procedures in regards to bathing and recreation beaches as well as sampling and monitoring practices in rivers, beaches and around sewage egresses.

The monitoring work is accompanied by regular survey patrols along the entire section in which boating takes place and regular communication with relevant factors (municipal and others). The survey focuses on the sewage egresses and other potential sources of pollution.
