In the Dead Sea Spa Hotel, water filters were recently installed, and since then a third of the valuable drinking water can be recycled as water for washing and flushing toilets. Projects like this are extremely important, because tourism is growing and water shortages loom. According to predictions, Jordanians themselves and tourists visiting the country will use about 513 million cubic meters of water in the year 2020. Added to that are the needs of the refugees flooding in from neighboring Syria.
