The case history of a thick upper Cretaceous limestone aquifer overlying impermeable lower Cretaceous strata in central Israel is described. The aquifer, cropping out in mountains, dips westward under relatively impermeable Tertiary deposits. Its natural recharge is principally from winter rains in the outcrops. Supplemental artificial recharge by means of wells during wet spells enables it to supply water in dry periods.
