Jordan Valley Authority to develop Wadi Araba

By Petra - Sep 21,2015 - Last updated at Sep 21,2015

AMMAN — The Jordan Valley Authority (JVA) floated tenders to dig 16 wells in different areas in Wadi Araba, within the Water and Irrigation Ministry’s five-year plan to develop the area.

Water Minister Hazem Nasser said the government’s development plan would cost JD2.129 million and serve more than 15,000 citizens in Wadi Araba, around 300km south of Amman.

The wells would supply four agricultural projects in the area and assist in the implementation of other projects, Nasser added, while farmable lands would be increased by 9,000 dunums at a cost of JD22 million.
