According to bank provided information, the investment involves the provision of up to EUR30 million loan to finance the construction of a new 24,750 m3/day wastewater treatment facility, to replace and relocate an existing facility currently co-located at the Ain Ghazal Treatment Plant (AGTP), as well as a two-year phased operational period to ensure sustainability of the investment. The new facility will be located at Al Ghabawi and will serve approximately 5.5 million people, including 600,000 Syrians in Amman and the surrounding area.
Despite a significant increase in capex (primarily financed by IFIs), 20 per cent of the population in Amman and Zarqa are unconnected to the mains sewer system, creating a substantial need for a cost efficient and sustainable solution to collect, treat and dispose of individual septic tank waste effectively. The Project will replace the existing and now inadequate facility at Ain Ghazal. The Water Authority Jordan (WAJ) will construct a new dedicated septic tank wastewater treatment facility at the more remote location of Al Ghabawi (this transaction) and afterwards will decommission the septic tank facility at AGTP (the decommissioning will be done under a separate project).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent.
You can contact the PCM at: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a complaint online using an online form at: http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en
