This study will give an overview on the actual amounts of TWW and existing reuse practices in Jordan. By using Geographical Information Systems 33 centralized wastewater treatment systems that serve communities bigger than 5000 PE have been mapped and the actual amount and quality of TWW (about 163 MCM in 2018) and its reuse is discussed, and the best practice examples for the reuse of TWW and biosolids in Jordan are presented.
Furthermore, 85 treatment systems serving communities, hotels, individual houses smaller than 5000 PE have been identified. These study results should serve as the basis for the establishment of a national inventory, in particular, for decentralized wastewater treatment and reuse systems, which facilitates the coordination of permit procedures and control measures in Jordan.
