  The Wadi Mujib dam
by TheWanderingCamel

When you drive down the Kings' Highway you will pass the new dam in Wadi Mujib.

This dam is interesting: it was built not to collect water for domestic or industrial use, but simply to consolidate the water table. There are a number of dams, intended to stop the flow of water away from the mountains - and the scheme is working.
