    AMMAN — The country’s major dams now hold a third of their total storage capacity of 336.4 million cubic metres (mcm), said Water Minister Motasem Saidan.

    In a ministry’s statement, Saidan said that the recent rainfall has channelled some 105.4 million cubic metres (cm) into the Kingdom’s 14 major dams until Wednesday morning, noting that storage at the dams reached 107.4 mcm, which is 31.9 per cent of their total capacity.

    The minister said that the last precipitation raised the overall rain that the Kingdom received since the beginning of the wet season to 2.624 billion cm, constituting 32 per cent of Jordan’s long-term annual average rainfall of 8.1 billion cm.
