The Water Authority of Jordan's (WAJ) company Miyahuna has temporarily stopped pumping water from water wells and Al Wala Dam in Ma’in as a precautionary measure, due to high turbidity in the water, which was caused by the flash floods that swept south Jordan on Friday.

Miyahuna said in a statement on Saturday, November 10, that halting water-pumping will affect the distribution of water in Amman, Zarqa and Madaba, adding that their services will go back to normal once the water has been purified again.
