Water Found Beneath Jerusalem
By David Dolan


Construction workers in Jerusalem have discovered a large underground cave full of fresh flowing water. Officials say it is the most substantial underground water reservoir ever uncovered in the land. Scientists from Hebrew University who have been exploring the cave say itís located about 150 feet below the ground. It appears to be around 30 feet high and stretches for some distance before cascading into the mountain aquifer that exists below the hills of Judea and Samaria.

The cave was uncovered while workers were drilling a shaft into the ground in preparation for a new subway railroad that will run from Jerusalem to Israelís Ben Gurion international airport and the nearby city of Tel Aviv. Officials say the planned subway line will probably have to be built elsewhere as a result of the huge fresh water discovery underneath the current site of the central Jerusalem bus station. The cave also runs below the cityís largest public auditorium where the annual Christian Feast of Tabernacles celebration is held every autumn. Officials say the potable water discovery is almost as good as finding large oil deposits or gold.

(Zech 14 vs 8And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.)

Oil and water both found on this tiny piece of land.   ;)
