AMMAN — Ministry of Water and Irrigation spokesman Omar Salama said that additional quantities of water, consisting of an estimated 10 percent increase, will be pumped to the areas in Amman, Zarqa, and Balqa that will witness an interruption in pumping from the Disi water system next week, Khaberni reported.اضافة اعلان

The interruption was scheduled for an annual system maintenance, as the ministry carries out periodic maintenance on water facilities that operate around the clock.

During the scheduled maintenance, technicians will replace damaged pumps and perform regular maintenance on power lines to ensure their durability, Salama said.

The ministry chose this time of year because water consumption is lower than in summer months, he said.

He said the ministry announced the maintenance to give citizens a chance to prepare for the interruption.
