A full lake needs only 2.01 meters

All the numbers show the sign below sea level. The water level of the Kinneret is 2.01 meters lower from the upper red line and 2.19 meters higher from the bottom red line and 4.06 meters higher from the historic lowest water level ever measured in the Kinneret. forecast

Upper red line
This sign shows that the Kinneret is full (maximum capacity). When this level is reached, the Dganya Dam is being opened.

Lower red line
The line height is 213.0 meters below sea level. According to ecology experts with the decline of the water level under this line starts a damage to ecological balance and water quality begins to decline. After the arrival of water to this level it is forbidden to pump or use water from the Kinneret.

Historical minimum water level
This level is below the pipes, so taking water from Lake Kinneret becomes impossible in terms of performance.
