Two mineral water companies in Israel have halted the production of bottled water due to bacteria found in the streams they exhaust.

Bottled water dominates the Israeli market, and drinking tap water is considered an anachronistic oddity by most.

This development adds to the national water crisis Israel is experiencing this year, as the Kinnereth lake — Israel’s largest source of water — is continuously shrinking to unprecedented dimensions.

In a related note, Global Warming experts predict that disputes over water is going to be the foremost reason for why nations go to war in the 21th Century.
