  • Yes, the Dead Sea can be revitalized.

    With the proper humanitarian and conservation efforts, we can see big improvements in our ecosystems all around the world. The Dead Sea can be revitalized if the proper resources are used to help the situation. In my opinion, there is much that can be done to reconstruct damaged areas of our world and environment.

  • Yes, it is possible

    The Dead Sea has lived up to its name for a long time. However, with the right resources and technology, it is possible that at least a portion of it can be revitalized. It would most likely be a time-consuming and labor-intensive project, but if the need is strong enough then it will be worth it.

  • Yes it can be

    Other major point: Dead sea can only be revitalized by stopping “now” the [ALL] industrial activities on both sides IL and JO. Return the natural base flow from Tiberius lake. No problem of having the brine from desalination plants along the river from both sides; BUT raw wastewater MUST stop now. Wish part of many master plans for the JR to come true! When, God knows alone!

  • No, I don`t think so.

    The Dead Sea's low surface level has caused changes in the biological, chemical and physical composition of the lake. The gradual recession of the shore may have negative effects on tourism and potash mining. A more pressing issue is that the low surface level is evidence of the water shortage throughout the region. Overuse and mismanagement of existing resources, in addition to massive development projects on both sides of the Jordan River, have caused water table levels throughout Israel to drop. Lake Tiberias, which supplies almost one-third of Israel's water requirements, is at its lowest level in 60 years. As a result, Israel and Jordan rank among the top 20 countries suffering from water scarcity, according to World Resources Water Stress Index, 1990. This index measures annual renewable water resources per capita available for agriculture, industry and domestic use. Renewable freshwater resources of 1,000 cubic meters have been accepted as an adequate minimum for development. Israel and Jordan are already far below that level. Using the same index to predict future water scarcity given low and high UN population growth predictions, the situation is expected to worsen. Although efficient management and modern technology can stretch scarce resources in some cases Israel, for example, supports agricultural, industrial and domestic needs with less than 500 cubic meters per person per year present water use may not be sustainable in the long run.
