An Israeli-Canadian consortium unveiled a system to monitor water reservoirs for terrorist poisoning, Israel’s Globes business daily reported.

Presented at the WATEC Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition and Conference, in Tel Aviv, the system was shown to continuous spectrum analyzers to detect any organic change in water, providing water quality data every two minutes. It uses algorithms to identify the nature of any contamination, chemical, fuel, industrial waste, or paint thinner, for example.

The consortium includes Israel’s national water company, Mekorot National Water Company, and Canada’s Real Tech Inc., in collaboration with the Technion Israel Institute of Technology and supported by Israel’s Office of the Chief Scientist and the Canada-Israel Industrial Research and Development Foundation.

Mekorot is testing the system at its water control stations at Rosh Ha’Ayin and at the Eshkol Central Filtration Plant, in the Galilee, while Real Tech is testing the system at facilities in Canada.

Mekorot CEO Shimon Ben-Hamo said that when the system is ready, it will be installed throughout the company’s network of reservoirs and water quality stations.

Nothing is safe these days - anything and everything represents a fair target to the satanic cult of Islam.

What's the next thing we're going to have to worry about? Toxic air perhaps??
Thanks radical Islam for making the world a "better" place. Your contribution to mankind is immeasurable!!

Can't these terrorists always wanting to do EVIL things to instead start searching their souls for love, peace and harmony.

What about the poisoning by Big Oil & Gas - fracking, drilling and mining? Evidently that isn't terrorism...but they will destroy our water far quicker that any radical group.

"It uses algorithms to identify the nature of any contamination, chemical, fuel, industrial waste, or paint thinner, for example."

looks like a good idea for any water reservoir - just can't figure out why to "blame" terrorists for the need to monitor water reservoirs...

Way to go Israel and thank you Canada for working with Israel on this important project, instead of adopting a "Divestment, Boycott" stance. Working together we can achieve great things.

I agree with the others, it's sad that this is something we must concern ourselves with.

a grim reality of our times - especially israel's - that terrorism has driven so many valuable learnings and discoveries. our water supplies are all too often poisoned by our toxic industrial activities. it's madness - poisoning water affects everyone!

Annette,

Poisoning water of the enemy is a tactic that goes back thousands of years. A group of Muslims was seen just a few months ago -- and stopped by police -- for being next to a water reservoir, I think in NY. When asked what they were doing there, they responded that they were just researching water reservoirs....

Of course, that IS the first step those would take before poisoning. Muslim terrorists study just about every angle conceivable to do the greatest amount of damage with the least amount of effort.

This should not even be a question.

They should deploy it around fracking sites. Now there's terrorism for yah!

I hope this is shared/bought throughout the Middle East.
