A survey has been conducted through Yarmouk Water Company’s (YWC) Surveying Department to identify properties connected illegally to wastewater networks. The survey targeted 13,472 in Qasabit Irbid, as well as 9463 in Bani Ubaid District, which could officially be connected to YWC’s wastewater network, for Irbid Governorate, as of 17 October 2014. The survey also included 1115 and 1679 properties in Ramtha and Ajloun, in addition to 4115 and 1519 properties in the governorates of Jarash and Mafraq respectively.

Wastewater Flooding

YWC has dealt with hundreds of complaints during the summer months involving wastewater flooding in streets, causing environmental pollution and health hazards. Although this has become a daily occurrence in different locations within YWC’s service zones, the real trouble behind such complaints is the incorrect use of the networks. That said the networks were initially designed to get rid of septic holes spread across large areas, in all northern governorates, and to reduce the environmental impact of such holes that threaten several of the country’s water sources.
