Emblem of Moshav Herut The water pool
The first water pool in Moshav Herut was built in 1933. Its capacity is 1000 cubic meters. The pool receives its water from wells to the west of the moshav. The water is pumped from the coastal aquifer, from a depth of about 50 meters. The pool is still used today to supply water to the residents of the moshav, for domestic consumption and for agriculture.
During the events of 1936-1939 and during the War of Independence, the pool also served as a defensive position.
It was used for observation and signaling (in Morse code) for additional defense positions in the moshav and for water tanks in nearby moshavim.
The security fence of the moshav passed at the foot of the pool to the south.
In the upper perimeter of the pool you can still see the firing slits and the spotlight.
