Director of the RJEC, Imad Al-Khamaiseh said that more than 20 earth dams, and more than 50 earth pits, and five ponds have been established to collect water in different regions of the Kingdom.

Khamaiseh explained that the RJEC had previously established a large number of earth dams and ponds in desert areas to maintain water for its residents.

He said that the agreement, signed with the Jordan Valley Authority to clean and remove sediments and silt from the Mujib Dam, was preceded by the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Water and Irrigation to implement various projects.

Khamaiseh said that the work agreed upon with the Jordan Valley Authority is being completed on time, reiterating that the role of the RJEC is not only in Mujib dam, but includes all dams, and ponds in desert areas.

The RJEC has many contributions in community development and support of the national economy in cooperation with ministries and private companies, as well as dealing with all harmful substances to get rid of them in order to preserve public safety.
