An extension of the Zarqa governorate project, Samra Wastewater Treatment Plant, is scheduled to begin in August to raise its capacity by about 37%, officials have said.

The expansion project, managed and implemented by the Millennium Challenge Account-Jordan and funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation, aims to improve environment and public health conditions in the governorate by properly treating the growing amounts of wastewater, and supplying farmers in the Jordan Valley with more irrigation water.

“The existing plant, which treats wastewater from Amman and Zarqa, has almost reached its maximum hydraulic capacity. Therefore, the expansion project seeks to raise its capacity from 267,000m3 per day to 364,800m3 per day,” said Minister of Water and Irrigation, Mohammad Najjar.
