After four consecutive years of drought, Israel depends heavily on its desalination program for water, but the state comptroller said on Monday that the state’s water management is to blame for a shortfall in the supply of desalinated water.

“The Water Authority is charged with the responsibility for the country’s most important natural resource but has for years managed the water in a way that is not suitable for the scale of responsibility that it entails,” State Comptroller Yosef Shapira charged in his annual report published on Monday.
