Description :
The drainage of Lake Hula, and its swamps, and other man-induced changes in the Upper Jordan basin, have created a new hydrological and sedimentological regime in the Upper Jordan River. Annual mean maximum peak discharges have increased at the valley outlet from 57 m/s to 96 m/s. The Flood Routing Index has been doubled and floods are transmitted in a much shorter time. Increase in upstream water consumption brought the water flow during the summer months to very low levels.
