Jordan Water and Wastewater Network Program
Hazen and Sawyer is working with Jordan’s Government to manage the water and wastewater network expansion portion of a $275 million Water Infrastructure Program funded by a grant from the Millennium Challenge Corporation, a US federal funding agency whose mission is to reduce poverty by supporting economic growth.
Critical Infrastructure Upgrades
This program will improve water supply to approximately a million people and better support agricultural needs.
As Program Manager, we are developing, coordinating, and monitoring detailed project schedules and budgets, and providing fast-track design and construction management of buried infrastructure works for both water distribution and wastewater collection systems to be constructed under nine contracts in a densely populated community of the Zarqa Governorate of Jordan.
Project Outcomes and Benefits
- Rehabilitating and restructuring of existing water supply networks.
- Converting an old pumped water distribution system to a gravity-fed distribution system that will improve service, reduce water supply losses and extend the lifespan of the network.
- Increasing the wastewater collection system to serve 85 percent of the community.
- Replacing or rehabbing up to 29 kilometers of undersized trunk lines and expansion of sewers by up to 140 kilometers.
- Rehabilitating or replacing approximately 40 miles of water transmission pipelines and 250 miles of distribution piping to improve water supply to approximately a million people.
- Providing 26 mgd of additional water for domestic consumption to local communities and enhancing the collection of wastewater for treatment and reuse for irrigation in the Zarqa Governorate.
