Ministry aims to cut water wastage by 30 per cent
Jordan’s Zarqa Water Project will be implemented later this month, the country’s Minister of Water and Irrigation has said.
Mohammed Najjar said that the $275m project, which is funded by the US government as part of the Millennium Project, would help address Amman’s water consumption issues, cutting it by 12 per cent. Programmes by the water authority to cut water waste have already seen a 48 per cent reduction.
In a statement released by the ministry, Najjar said that he plans to cut water wastage to 30 per cent within a set timeframe, allowing water service around the clock.
