On the sign:
תחנת בית סוסין
שנת ההקמה: 1948
הוקמה במסגרת "מבצע שילוח" לאספקת מים לירושלים הנצורה במלחמת השחרור.
מבצע בזק של חברת "מקורות". קו המים שנוח עבר צמוד ל"דרך בורמה".

התחנה שימשה כבוסטר (משאבת עזר) הדוחפת את המים שהגיעו מקידוחי רחובות לעבר ירושלים. במקום הוקמו שני בוסטרים אשר נבנו במבני בטון מוגנים מסיבות בטחוניות.

תחנת בית סוסין פעלה עד שנת 1952.בשנה זו הופעלו מחדש ה"קו המנדטורי" שהוביל מים ממעינות ראש העין ו"הקו המקביל" שהוביל מים מאשתאול לשער הגיא, ושניהם סיפקו את המים לירושלים.

שיקום וניקוי התחנה וסביבותיה נעשה על ידי עובדי "מקורות" מרחב מרכז ומחלקת דוברות והסברה ב"מקורות".

Translation of the text on the sign:

Bayt Susin Station
Year of establishment: 1948
Established as part of a "Shiloah operation" to supply water to besieged Jerusalem during the War of Independence.
A lightning operation by Mekorot. The convenient water line passed adjacent to the "Burma Road".

The station served as a booster (auxiliary pump) that pushes the water that came from the drillings of Rehovot towards Jerusalem. Two boosters were built on the site, which were built in protected concrete structures for security reasons.

The Bayt Susin station operated until 1952. This year, the "Mandatory line" that carried water from the Rosh HaAyin springs and the "parallel line" that carried water from Eshtaol to Sha’ar HaGai were reactivated, and both supplied the water to Jerusalem.

Rehabilitation and cleaning of the station and its surroundings was done by Mekorot employees from the central area and a spokesperson and information department at Mekorot.
