Israeli officials urge conservation measures for the Sea of Galilee

Israeli officials urge conservation measures as they note in mid-August 2011 that the water level of Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, which is a major reservoir for Israel's National Water Carrier System and provides about one-third of the country's annual water, has dropped below a red warning line.
