I visited this morning a large and traditional olive oil press in the City of Bakkah, near Kalansuwah, whose health permit has not been renewed in the last two years. For two years they could not sell their oil to Israeli supermarkets, etc. The owners tried the legal way and hired an Arab protest lawyer. He did not succeed so they called me. I read the letter detailing the demands of the Ministry of Health and it was very reasonable, it only mentioned that the sewage disposal problem has not been solved and nothing is being done to solve it. What is true. That sewage was running in the factory floor. I havent seen it, but the factory is not working, because the olive season is just starting. The factory´s problem is that the whole village has no sewage system, although there are projects to connect it to the Djatt - Bakka Al Garbiyya town, a larger Arab settlement that has a WWTP, or to the Emek Hefer system. According to Israeli law, a factory has to be connected to a central sewage system is there is one at a distance of 800 meters. If not, it has to provide a private solution. I will design a program for them and they will have their permit renewed. It is Ramadan and they explained to me that because of their religion, they cannot invite me to the traditional Arab coffee. I dont like oversweet bitter coffee anyway.
