Since 2009 the water sector is in a process of legal and institutional reform. The anticipated outcomes of the reform included a revised institutional Water Sector Set-up into (1) PWA being responsible for policy functions for water resources, water supply and wastewater and for regulatory functions for water resources, (2) Water Sector Regulatory Council (WSRC) being responsible for regulatory functions for water supply and wastewater, (3) the current West Bank Water Department (WBWD) to be transformed into an independent public company being responsible for bulk water supply to water supply service providers.
In June 2014, a new Water Law was passed. A core issue of this Water Law is the establishment of a Water Sector Regulatory Council (WSRC). A Board of Directors made up of a Chairman and six members was recommended by the Cabinet of Ministers (CoM) to the President. On the 20th Of August 2014, the President issued the decision forming the BoD of WSRC representing the public and private sector.
The main objective of WSRC is to monitor all matters related to the operation of water service providers, including production, transportation, distribution, consumption, wastewater collection, treatment and disposal, and reuse of treated wastewater for irrigation with the aim of ensuring water and wastewater service quality and efficiency to consumers in Palestine at affordable prices.
A Road Map for the establishment and operation of the WSRC was prepared by the Board of Directors of WSRC on October 2014. It comprises a description of the overall implementation approach, the detailed WSRC implementation activities, the required donor support as well as a one-year work plan.
