AMMAN — The Jordan Water Company (Miyahuna) has started a survey to identify the percentage of water loss in Tareq District in northeast Amman, Miyahuna Executive Director Ghazi Khalil said on Sunday.

The survey is being conducted following a project implemented by Miyahuna over the past two years aiming to reduce water loss in Tareq District, Khalil said.

“There are some 20,000-22,000 water subscribers in Tareq area. The survey will identify how much we have succeeded in reducing water loss in the area,” Khalil told The Jordan Times.

Miyahuna teams are now visiting households in Tareq area to read the water meters after sending text messages to subscribers informing them of the survey.

“Because we visit households every three months to issue the quarterly water bill, the subscribers were notified via text message of our upcoming visits to read the meters and analyse data,” a meter reader said.

“Results of the project and the survey will be announced soon after the teams conclude the visits,” Khalil noted.

Water loss in Tareq stood at 45 per cent before the project was implemented, according to Miyahuna's website.
