The Zai Water Supply System is one of the major resources to supply 70% of water to the capital, Amman, home to nearly half of Jordan's population. As 30 years have passed since the current facility was built, the aging and decreased functions are becoming a problem to meet the growing needs for water. On the other hand, a geographical challenge exists. There is a in elevation difference of over 1,260 meters between Amman and the water source located in Jordan Valley. The main challenge for this project is to provide a stable water supply while achieving enhanced operation with maximized cost/energy effectiveness.

The project is being executed under the Grant Agreement between Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Jordan.
