AMMAN — The Water Ministry and the Arab Potash Company (APC) on Tuesday signed an agreement to make use of water in a number of industries and to supply the APC with water to cover its production needs for 16 years.

Water Minister Raed Abul Saud said that the ministry is implementing several projects to expand water harvesting in the Kingdom to increase dams’ storage to 400 million cubic metres by 2025, noting that the APC has helped the ministry implement water projects across the Kingdom, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
