The continuous of increase in population has led to higher demand on water, resulting the depletion of groundwater aquifers and high water consumption rates on the amounts of groundwater recharge.
This led to serious phenomenon, such as drying springs and salinization of groundwater wells and increasing the concentration of nitrate in groundwater wells too. This study aims to highlight the problem of water resources depletion in Jordan and the consequences of the lack of proper management and stand on the reasons that led to the negative effects that occurred as a result of un rationing water resources uses. Also to find ways to rid of these negative effects for the provision of water resources in agriculture domestic and industry uses. This study indicated that, the reason for salinization of groundwater and deterioration of the quality due to overpumping, the use of surface irrigation technique and the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture. As well as the use of pesticides has negative impacts on the environment. Some examples of negative effects cases due to severe abstraction in all water basins in Jordan and methods of treatment were reviewed. The reuse of treated wastewater must be considered with positive specificity as tributary sources to the available water amounts at the present time. This nonconventional source is the achievement expression can cover a large part of the agricultural requirements of the specific use and fill part of the domestic water shortage. Taking into account the appropriate water treatment characteristics and quality of the crop to be harvested to avoid negative environmental impacts of current practices
