AMMAN — Four million cubic metres (mcm) of water entered the country's dams on Thursday, Ministry of Water and Irrigation Spokesperson Omar Salameh said. Rainfall during the past 10 days channelled more than 25mcm to the dams, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, quoted Salameh as saying.

Thus, water storage in the Kingdom's dams reached 145mcm, which amounts to 43.5 per cent of the dams' total storage capacity compared to around 115mcm (35.5 per cent) during the same period last year, he added.
