Jordan declares a water rehabilitation project worth €98 million.

Jordan’s Ministry of Water and Irrigation has signed off on the sixth phase of the Deir Alla and Al Karama water networks rehabilitation project in the Balqa Governorate, as reported by Jordan News Agency.

The agreement with the local Marwan Al Kurdi Company entails the drilling of 16 new wells in the Abu Al Zygan area, a significant advancement in the overall improvement of the water networks in Deir Alla and Al Karama.

With a budget of around 97.24 million euros, secured through a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and complemented by full financing for studies, design, and supervision from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the project aims to boost water supply across 17 locations within the districts.

The project, designed to minimize water losses, ensure fair distribution, and reduce operational expenses, is divided into seven segments to efficiently achieve its goals.

Minister of Water and Irrigation, Raed Abu Saud, emphasized the ministry’s dedication to accelerating the implementation of these networks to meet growing demand and rectify disparities. The utilization of natural flow pumping techniques will enhance network durability and service effectiveness.

The drilling of 16 wells in Abu Al-Zayghan, valued at 13.55 million US dollars, includes preliminary activities for integration into the primary pipelines to enhance water availability in the regions.

Minister Abu Saud acknowledged the international assistance, highlighting the crucial roles played by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in providing essential financial support for crucial water initiatives.

Representatives from the EIB and USAID praised the fruitful collaboration with Jordan’s water sector, underscoring a shared commitment to tackling water challenges through partnership.
