Jordan Decentralized Wastewater Management Policy reflects the wide spectrum of decentralized wastewater management and the many tasks necessary for the successful implementation and sustainable operation. This policy intends to expand wastewater management by implementing the practice of recycling and reusing water beyond the existing conventional wastewater service system.
This document sets out government policy for the provision of decentralized wastewater management, ie. the collection, treatment, disposal and reuse of wastewater, with the aim to fulfill the national target for wastewater services. This policy is intended to be used by the decision-makers as the primary reference to determine wastewater management and infrastructure projects that involve decentralized wastewater management infrastructure.
The purpose of decentralized wastewater management systems in Jordan are:
- Protection of groundwater from pollution with untreated wastewater.
- Provision of cost-efficient wastewater management options.
- Provision of locally available alternative water resource for safe reuse.
