Desalinating Red Sea Waters to Manage the Dead Sea
The Dead Sea, according to the Torah, was created by God in Sodom and its neighboring cities. It is fed by the waters that are said to have baptized Jesus Christ, the Jordan River.

Despite the cultural, hydrological, historical, and socio-economic value of this unique water body, unsustainable use of the Jordan River and mining of its minerals continues to threaten the existence of the Dead Sea as it loses water at a rate of about one meter per year. It is clear that water management in the region is necessary to balance environmental preservation with a reliable water supply for human use.

One such option is the Red Sea-Dead Sea conveyance project which has three main objectives 1) to save the Dead Sea from environmental degradation; 2) to desalinate Red Sea water as a drinking water source for Amman, Jordan and 3) to build a symbol of peace and cooperation between the three stakeholder entities. To meet these goals will center around a $10.6 billion dollar conveyance system to transfer saline water over 200 kilometers from the Red Sea north to the Dead Sea.

Troubles Run Deep for Wisconsin Waters - The Wisconsin DNR cites that ¼ of more than 700 bodies of water which fail to meet water quality standards do so because of high levels of phosphorus. The Department of Health Services cites 26 cases of algae-related illnesses between 2009 and 2011 in Dunn County, which originated from Tainter Lake. Blue-green algae has been found in Lake Winnebago, which supplies drinking water to Appleton, Neenah, Menasha and Oshkosh.
