Jordan's PM seeks to find water shortage solution
Stable water supply top government concern, says prime minister.
Jordan’s prime minister Samir Rifai urged the ministry of water and irrigation to find immediate and effective solutions to chronic water supply disruptions in some parts of the Kingdom, reports the Jordan News Agency.
Rifai, who chaired a meeting at the ministry, called for a drastic solution to recurring water cuts this week by using water tankers to serve areas affected by the disruptions until a permanent solution is found.
The premier urged implementation of a ministry contingency plan to cope with high demand for water during the summer and the holy month of Ramadan.
The government, Rifai pledged, deemed delivering efficient services to citizens a top order and called for a fair distribution of water to households across the Kingdom.
He stressed the need to enforce the law in terms of water distribution violations and penalise offenders of water network rules and regulations.
