Rehab Villages Wastewater Reuse Project

Wastewater management and reuse for adaptation to climate change in Jordan (ACC - Project) is a bilateral project started in 2014 to support Jordan to develop its capacity by dealing with climate change adaptation measures in the water sector. The Water Authority of Jordan (WAJ) in cooperation with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) assigned LeAF - Wageningen to develop a Feasibility Study and Concept Design for the concept design of a modular community-based decentralized wastewater collection, treatment and reuse systems for the villages of Dajaniyyeh and Bwaidhah Gharbieh (Rehab Villages) in the northern Mafraq Governorate of Jordan. Water Partner Jeroen Kool acted as Project Manager for this assignment.

The final Feasibility Study, Outline Designs and separate Technical Memoranda on the aspects related to the Sewer System; a Decentralized anaerobic Wastewater Treatment System and Agricultural reuse and irrigation schemes were issued in February 2017. The deliverables will be furthermore used to develop standards for the conceptual development of decentralized wastewater treatment and reuse schemes through Jordan.
