The Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) has invited consultants to express interest by 18 August in advising on a water pipeline rehabilitation and extension project.

The project aims to increase the water supply to Jerash and Ajloun governorates, served by Yarmouk Water Company, which suffer severe water shortages.

The scheme includes the rehabilitation or extension of the Um Lulu, Hofa, and Samad pumping stations in the Northern Governorates of Jordan.

The project will be implemented in 36 months, of which the design stage will take nine months. Construction works are scheduled to take approximately 24 months.

It will be financed by WAJ and the German Development Bank KfW. The total available budget for the project is about €23m ($32m). The total construction cost of the plan is about JD100m ($140m).
