Northern Jordan has one of the world’s most arid climates, and the scarcity of water resources is a key challenge to the region’s governing authorities and the Water Authority of Jordan. The delivery of the Central Irbid / Wadi Arab project has had immense benefits to the local community, providing vastly improved irrigation supplies and enabling local reservoirs to be dedicated to the provision of high quality potable water to the population.
