Materials and Methodology Results Conclusion 2 Introduction and Background: Water situation Jordan is located in an arid to semi arid area (50 mm to 600 mm), Approximately 92.2% of the rainfall evaporates and considered as one of the top water scarce countries in the world. Therefore, water reuse is a high priority. Recently, the problem of water shortage in Jordan has been become worse as a result of high natural population growth, influxes of refugees, rural to urban migration and increased standards of living. Research problem

Currently, Construction activities world-wide are expected to expand over the coming years and will consume more fresh water annually one billion tons of mixing water In Jordan, around 4 Mm3/y of fresh water is needed to prepare ready mix concrete. In addition, another 4 Mm3/y for washing activities and wet curing. According to JS it is a must to use fresh water for concrete production The treated wastewater is estimated to be around 117 MCM/year in 2020 [1]. Between 50% and 80% of the domestic household wastewater is grey water. Therefore, grey water treatment and reuse for concrete industry is a high priority and rational action. Such research type is important in order to change people attitude and the legislations. 4 Grey water Definition is all types of wastewater collected from household activities except toilet wastewater Project objectives

This study aimed to - Provide a new water resource to sustain the construction activities in Jordan. - evaluate the potential of reused grey water in concrete and mortar in order to save the fresh water for drinking purposes. Development of a Grey Water filtration-system Using Jordanian Natural Resources Study area \ Deir Alla (Um-Ayyaash area) which is located in the Middle Ghor, (rainfall 100 to 150 mm) and (temperature varying from 19 to 36.5C) Installation of multi layer filter in Field The pilot plant is running automatically The system running cost is zero There is no rejected (Filtration efficiency is 100%) Materials and Methodology - Two types of Grey water samples were collected from the pilot plant

(RGW and TGW) and analyzed . - Coarse and fine aggregates and cement were collected and characterized - Concrete and mortar mixes using RGW and TGW as well as Distilled Water (DW) were prepared and casted in cubic and prisms moulds . - Fresh properties of mortar and concrete were tested directly. Other properties were tested after various curing ages (7, 28, 120, and 200 days). Mixing, Casting, and Curing, testing for Concrete 8 Mortar and Concrete Mix Design Table (1).

14 Conclusion - Based on of grey water quality and the Mixing water permissible limits for concrete, the TGW is suitable for concrete production. However, the RGW should be pretreated to reduce the microorganism content before the water can be in direct contact with humans. - According to ASTM C94, ASTM C109 requirements and the IS 456, TGW and RGW are suitable for concrete production. - In conclusion, TGW and RGW are a potential alternative for fresh water in concrete industry.
