Dozens protest Tel Aviv sewage dump

A crowd of several dozen Israeli activists stage a protest outside the Tel Aviv municipality building over the city’s decision to dump some 180,000 cubic meters of sewage runoff into the sea along its beaches.

The runoff — caused by municipal infrastructure maintenance and upgrades of beachfront areas — is being pumped into the sea from the Reading Power Station.

Six beaches in Tel Aviv and neighboring Herzliya have been closed indefinitely due to the sewage dump.
