Kidron Valley, Wadi El Nar
The Kidron River flows from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea, for about 33 km, through the territory of the Palestinian Authority and currently discharges about 30% of the city's sewage, raw and untreated. In stark contrast to the serious sewage hazards and the general condition of the head of the basin in East Jerusalem, its enormous importance as a cultural landscape stands of global importance. The important connection between Jerusalem and the desert existed along the Kidron Gorge and along it countless sites sacred to the three monotheistic religions. The Kidron Basin Masterplan sought to design an environmental policy for the ecological restoration of the entire basin and proposes the promotion of various projects that would assist in the physical and social rehabilitation of the area and its inhabitants.
