Miyahuna manages and operates water sources and networks in the capital, Amman and Madaba Governorate, as well as a contract for the management of water and sanitation Zarqa. The company is concerned with the delivery of drinking water within international and local standards.
Resources of water supply
Surface water and groundwater wells are the main sources of drinking water in the three governorates. Zay and Zara are the main sources of these resources, as well as the waters of Disi.
- Zay Station for Water Treatment
Zay Water Station is the largest source of drinking water in the Kingdom and works on surface water purification. The station feeds the capital Amman, Balqa Governorate with at least 30% of its water needs. The capacity of the Zay water treatment plant is about 250 thousand cubic meters per day of pure water In accordance with the Jordanian specifications of drinking water, which is subject to intensive quality control through the laboratory tests and round the clock at the laboratories of the central water at the station Zay. The Zay water treatment plant is fed from the following water sources and at different rates according to the annual water conditions:
- Water of the Yarmouk River
- Water of the lake of Galilee
- Water of Al-Mkheebeh wells
- Water of Al-Wehdeh Dam
- Water of Wadi Al-Arab Dam
These sources are channeled into the King Abdullah channel and run in an open channel (70 km) to reach the point of intake. The raw water flows from the King Abdullah Canal to the Ze water treatment plant, starting from the receiving station where the initial treatment is carried out, To reach the treatment plant in Ze where the water in the Ze water treatment plant is subjected to the stages of physical and chemical purification to ensure that the water produced for the Jordanian drinking water standard 286/2015 is met. The water is pumped after treatment at Zi station by a lift station (5) to Dabouk tank in Amman. Raise and pump the raw water through the pumping stations equipped with each of four water pumps from (220) meters below the sea surface to (860) meters above sea level at the station and then pumped to the tank of gluten at a height of (1035) above the sea, for more Click Here
- Maein Desalination Plant
The Maein station is located in the Dead Sea area at a distance of (342) meters below sea level. The station was completed in 2006 at a cost of $125 million. The largest part of it was financed by a grant from the US Agency for International Development (USAID).
The station was operated for two years by the Morgente and DeGremont consortium. In 2009, the station joined its staff to Miyahuna - with 87 employees. The plant adopts reverse osmosis technology to desalinate the water coming to it with a daily production rate of 110,000 m3, equivalent to 14% of the capital consumption. The access of the produced water to the gardan is ensured through (6) pumping stations with a length of (42) km by a height difference (1200) meters, for more Click Here .
