News EBRD and EU upgrade wastewater sector in Jordan

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)  signed an agreement with the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation to channel EU grants and help the Water Authority of Jordan to modernise and enhance the water and wastewater management sector in Jordan.

The European Union (EU) is providing a grant of €30 million that is co-financed by a €41.3 million loan from the EBRD for the construction of a greenfield wastewater treatment facility in Al Ghabawi on the outskirts of the capital, Amman. The new facility will replace the existing one in Ain Ghazal, which is harming the environment and causing a nuisance to the surrounding communities.

The Al Ghabawi facility will treat septage collected from areas in Amman that are not connected to the sewerage network. This will help eliminate odour, noise pollution and traffic problems due to septic tank truck movements around the current facility in Ain Ghazal.
