Mrs. Um Osama Omran (46) washes dishes with water from a storage jug at her home in Zarqa, Jordan. “We have no water here in the houses because all the pipes are broken outside in the street,” she says. As part of the $275 million compact with Jordan, MCC is rehabilitating Zarqa’s antiquated drinking and wastewater network and helping to expand a new wastewater treatment facility, all of which will increase available water for drinking and irrigation and improve the safety and living conditions of the city’s residents.
