The Upper East Side Project: The Shamir Drill

The Shamir Drill will extract 6.6 billion gallons of drinkable water each year from a recently discovered source of underground water, which is one mile below the Earth's surface.

This effort will add 6 - 7 inches to the Kinneret's water level annually. The Kinneret (aka The Sea of Galilee) is Israel's largest fresh water reserve, but it is severely depleted.

This new water source will be a lifeline for the hundreds of agricultural families in Israel's "Fruit Basket" whose livelihoods have been compromised by cutbacks in water quotas due to drought.

Act Now! The competition only lasts from May 10 - June 15, 2010.
