It is chemically composed of one atom of oxygen and two hydrogen atoms, known as (H20). The name.

Although the scarcity water is not a problem to every country, but many people around the world lack access to clean drinking water, as our climate changes, more attention is being given to environmental issues such as water scarcity. This problem has been present most especially in the Middle East for over ten years, which one of the countries is Jordan. These problems begin to increase rapidly, due to the population increase in Jordan and more consumer requirement, which requires large amount of water. According to Williamson (2010). Water management, the two methods of water supply are; Large-scale water infrastructure, which involves use of reservoirs, massive water transfer projects dams and the second method is the large-scale water ground pumping, which serves as the only viable solution to water supply problems. This research will therefore give an overview of different approaches to water supply, and compares different methods of how water can be supply to meet the need of this country. SUMMARY
