One of the issues raised on Roya’s “This Morning” (Hatha Asabah) program, is the issue of the Wadi Al-Hajar area, adjacent to the Zarqa River. The area suffers bad flooding which is caused by rain, every year.

As a result, the Municipality of Zarqa carried out a clean-up campaign in preparation for winter, on Sunday, October 14, 2018. Municipality workers, social police, and school students began clearing the rubbish blocking the river, while diggers are digging into the river bed to make it deeper.

We are keen here at Roya to follow up on issues that are raised, and we make sure the local authorities are involved, and follow up on procedures and measures taken regarding the issue.
