WAJ has been contracting with farmers to provide them with reclaimed water for agricultural irrigation. In 2009, a total of about 760 ha is irrigated with reclaimed water under contracts with WAJ. It is worth noting that fodder crop irrigation is the dominant application for all other water reuse schemes in Jordan, with a few exception of irrigating trees such as date palm and olive.  In an effort to integrate reclaimed water resources in national water planning, the government of Jordan, with support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID), has been for the past ten years implementing several projects for direct water reuse activities. Wadi Mousa Water Reuse Pilot Project is one of these projects that seek to demonstrate that reclaimed water reuse can be reliable, commercially viable, socially acceptable, environmentally sustainable and safe.
