This came during a meeting with the Agriculture and Water Committee in the Senate to discuss the progress of the National Water Carrier Project, Al-Mamlaka News reported.

The National Water Carrier Project consists of its main elements, including an intake station on the southern shore of the Gulf of Aqaba, a desalination and pumping station in Aqaba, and a transmission line approximately 450 kilometers long.

Project details
It provides a sustainable source of drinking water, up to 300 million cubic meters of water, and bridges the current gap between demand and availability. It is not linked to any political commitments.

Dababneh said that the project is a "massive national endeavor, the largest project in Jordan's history, not only in terms of water but overall.”

He also noted that 85 percent of the land that the pipeline will cross will be government land, treasury land, and road reserves. And 218 kilometers of the carrier line will run parallel to the Desert Highway and the Dead Sea pipeline.

The Ministry of Water and Irrigation conducted technical, financial, environmental, and contractual studies for the project, supported through grants from the United States Agency for International Development and the European Investment Bank.

One of the project's requirements is the use of clean and environmentally friendly energy to ensure the government's commitment to reducing emissions and the associated impact on reducing the cost per cubic meter of produced water.
