Incredibly, or rather previsibly, bureaucratic regulation has added a new set of legislation and a new regulating/permitting body to the already complicated water sector. Up to now, the main water regulating body was the Ministry of Environment, but now an amendment was added to the Water Law which will allow the Water Authority to impose increased fines of up to 100,000 $ on bodies violating their regulation.
Obviously, the Water Authority needs a permits approval organization and of course, numerous inspectors with cars and instrumentation. This creates a window of opportunity for permitting experts to produce the presentations to the Water Authority, that surely will require large colorful drawings, field measurements, computer programs and detailed technical reports. I could conquer this new commercial niche, as I did with the air pollution (odors) legislation, but I am not trying to expand but to contract my workload.
