The Dead Sea is Dying
 
 
Unfortunately due to it's climatic position almost 7 million tons of water evaporate from the lake every day. In addition to that both Israel and Jordan are tapping into the Jordan river (the Dead Sea's main water source) for irrigation purposes at a rate which is depleting the lake to dangerous levels.

Combine that further with the recent droughts we're seeing in the region and it's quite clear that the famous lake is drying up with many parts already below the point of recovery.
