This paper deals with the problems of using the River Jordan as a source of irrigation water for agricultural settlements in the area between Lake Kinneret and the Dead Sea. The river is polluted by chlorides from salt springs and the levels are very variable. A forecasting model for chlorides is proposed which will operate with a real-time system in order to minimize loads applied to crops. The Box-Jenkins methodology is shown to provide a suitable model with the severe constraints of data availability. The statistical and operational success of the model are examined for forecasts at one abstraction point on the Jordan. Model development continues.
