Minister announces new water projects

Amman, Water and Irrigation Minister Raed Abul Saud announced Saturday that the Water Authority has issued tenders for water and sanitation projects, including those that will be financed by a grant from Saudi Arabia, at an estimated cost of 34 million dinars.

He said that the projects are part of the Ministry’s plans to achieve comprehensive development and upgrade the water and sanitation systems to meet the growing burdens that all regions of the Kingdom had suffered from and raise the level of service.

The minister said that the projects include improving and implementing new water networks, as well as serving new areas with sewage networks and connecting them to treatment plants located in the various governorates of the Kingdom.

“The projects will have a great impact in addressing the various defects that some of the areas had suffered from last summer”, he said, thanking Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates for the grants.
