Litani river: Two perspectives

At 90 miles (140 km) in length, the Litani is the longest river in Lebanon. It originates at the foothills of the Sannin and Anti-Lebanon mountain ranges in the north-central Bekaa plains of Lebanon, flows south to the town of Nabatiyeh, then veers sharply east and flows into the Mediterranean, a few miles north of the ancient city of Tyre.The Litani dammed at Qaraaoun to provide irrigation and electricity for the Bekaa Valley. Another perspective: Sewage in the Litani river area

This report shows how main agricultural lands in the Bekaa area are being watered by the surrounded Litani river in which sewage is being dumped into. (Kalam Ennas - Food Safety)
