Description of Project, Basic Design Concepts:

The Dead Sea Power Project is a hydroelectric project that will place a deep layer of Med Sea water on top of the Dead Sea, thus enabling desalination around the perimeter of the Dead Sea. This project holds great promise for enabling jobs and prosperity for the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, and opens the way for Jordan to meet their water needs for the foreseeable future.

This project plan was inspired by the vision of Ezekiel 47:1-12, and was developed by investigation of the geological conditions of that region. Several things were discovered that led to the planned location, including the tunnel inlet location south of Palmahim Park, the midpoint opening to the tunnel in the valley above Mevo Horon, the head pond storage reservoir on the south branch of Wadi Qumeran, and the shortest distance from the Med Sea to the Dead Sea.

Flotation of the Med Sea water on top of the Dead Sea is possible by diverting flow from the hydroplant by use of a large stone sea wall starting on the west bank of the Dead Sea south of the planned hydroplant location, extension of that sea wall to the east and north until reaching the shallow area of the Dead Sea where the Jordan enters. This construction will allow the slow release of the Med Sea water on top of the Dead Sea to produce the desired layering effect. This process is clearly pictured in these words of Ezekiel's vision:

Ezek 47:8-12-- Then he said to me, "These waters go out toward the eastern region and go down into the Arabah; then they go toward the sea, being made to flow into the sea, and the waters of the sea become fresh."
"It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes."
"And it will come about that fishermen will stand beside it; from Engedi to Eneglaim there will be a place for the spreading of nets. Their fish will be according to their kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea, very many."
"But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt.
"By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing." NASU

The Dead Sea Power Project (DSPP, www.deadseapower.com) proposes a $3.5 billion hydroelectric project to transport water from the Med Sea to the Dead Sea via a ten meter diameter tunnel by gravity flow, pictured in Ezekiel's vision by the one in one thousand factor for the depth of the river flow going down from Jerusalem into the Dead Sea.

Ezek 47:3-5-- When the man went out toward the east with a line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits, and he led me through the water, water reaching the ankles. Again he measured a thousand and led me through the water, water reaching the knees. Again he measured a thousand and led me through the water, water reaching the loins. Again he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not ford, for the water had risen, enough water to swim in, a river that could not be forded. NASU

Present status of project:

Presently I am exploring the requirements for license of this project as an Independent Power Producer project with the government of Israel. Anyone interested in helping with this process should contact me.
