Kufranja Dam

Kufranja Dam

Country: Jordan
Client: Ministry of Water & Irrigation, Jordan Valley Authority

Built in Ajloun in the north of Jordan, where water availability per capita is the lowest in the country, the Kufranja Dam was designed as a concrete-face rock-fill dam. It was the first of its kind in Jordan. Measuring 88 meters in height and 282 meters in length, the dam has a capacity of 6 million cubic meters.

Management Engineering Services Contract

Management Engineering Services Contract

Country: Jordan
Client: U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
Year Completed: Ongoing

Jordan is known for its limited water resources and with the fast pace growing demand for water; Jordan is on the way of being one of the poorest countries in term of water resources. Jordan’s per capita share of water is less than 150 m3/year which is classified as extreme water poverty. One of the greatest challenges that Jordan faces in the water sector is the significant levels of lost water, or non-revenue water (NRW), which is around 50% country-wide, posing more stress on the water supply system in the Kingdom.

The USAID-funded NRW program in Amman, Zarqa, Madaba, and Aqaba covers many aspects of this issue, including but not limited to: Isolation, restructuring and rehabilitation of metered water distribution zones by disconnecting redundant water networks, quick active and passive water leak detection and repair, procurement of needed maintenance equipment, customers and bulk meters replacement, water pressure control using upgraded flow modulating PRVs, SCADA, GIS and CIS systems, rehabilitation of high priority water distribution zones, and better NRW quantification and analyses.

Engicon was contracted to be the FARA consultant for this 5–year program. Scope includes overseeing the entire 60 million USD investment, as well as creating the institutional framework that allows for better management of NRW at Jordan Water Company (Miyahuna) and Aqaba Water Company (AWC)
