AMMAN — The country’s 15 main dams received 1.5 million cubic metres (mcm) of rainwater over the past 24 hours, reaching around 25.4 per cent of their total capacity, Water Minister Raed Abul Saud said on Monday.

Holding 85 million mcm of water, the Kingdom's dam storage is less than what they contained last year during the same period by 10 million mcm. Mujib Dam received the most inflow during the recent depression at 710,000 mcm of rainwater, followed by King Talal Dam, which received 490,000 mcm, he added.
