Jordan - Water Supply Project (English)

The Azraq - Irbad Water Supply Project for Jordan's two components are: 1) the Irbid transmission main, and 2) the water distribution systems for four municipalities: Irbid, Azraq, Ramtha and Husn. The project consist of pumping water from the springs at Druz Village-Azraq, a distance of 137 kilometers to a high level reservoir west and above City of Husn and supply water to City of Mafraq on the way. From the reservoir water would flow to the cities of Husn, Irbid and Ramtha by gravity. There will be 7 desert stations constructed along the way at approximately 17 kms. intervals to furnish water to nomadic desert tribes and their animals. Provision is made also for supplying water to an airforce base. The project provides a new source of water which is urgently needed by all communities of the area. Improvements to distribution systems and supply of water to communities, villages, and desert stations will insure definite public health benefits to the people residing within the area.
