Water levels are dangerously low, putting the Kinneret at risk of becoming irreversibly salinized by the salt water springs under the lake that are limited by the weight of the freshwater on top of them. In order to promote public awareness, McCann Erickson Israel created a daily twitter account that updates about the Kinneret water levels.

The Sea of Galilee, also Lake of Gennesaret, Lake Kinneret or Sea of Tiberias , is Israel’s largest freshwater lake, being approximately 53 km (33 miles) in circumference, about 21 km (13 miles) long, and 13 km (8 miles) wide. The lake has a total area of 166 km, and a maximum depth of approximately 43 m. At 209 meters below sea level, it is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth and the second-lowest lake in the world (after the Dead Sea, a saltwater lake). (via Wikipedia).
