The Ministry of Water and Irrigation announced that the Disi pipeline will gradually begin pumping water to areas in Amman as of Thursday, Nov. 25, following the completion of scheduled annual maintenance.

In a press statement, the ministry pointed out that the operating company has completed the necessary maintenance for a number of facilities, adding that each area in Amman will have to wait its turn as the water supply will resume gradually.

Nov. 13, the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, Water Authority of Jordan, Jordan Water Company Miyahuna and the company operating the Disi water line (Diwaco) had announced their intention to temporarily suspend pumping Disi water starting from Sunday morning, Nov. 21, until Thursday evening, Nov. 25.

The ministry said in a statement that this comes in order to carry out periodic and annual maintenance to preserve the sustainability of water pumping to all regions across the Kingdom.

The ministry indicated that the programmed suspension of water pumping will partially affect certain areas in the capital Amman and Zarqa governorate.

The Disi Water Conveyance Project is one of the Kingdom’s strategic water resources built on the BOT system, whereby the operating company inspects the work of operating the project, maintaining all facilities and conducting the necessary periodic maintenance for the purpose of ensuring its sustainability and efficiency throughout the year.
