The quantities of greywater generated in Middle East Countries are more than that reported in developed counties. Greywater represents 70–80% of domestic wastewater in Jordan and Oman. It might be due to geographical location, demographics and level of occupancy, social habits and water usage pattern and time (Prathapar et al., 2005; Jamrah et al., 2008). Furthermore, the estimation of quantities of greywater in Middle East counties is tricky because the greywater waters are combined with the sewage. Israel and Jordan are the best in treating and disinfecting greywater as well as in giving the regulation for using these waters in irrigation. On the contrary, the weakest country in this field is Yemen, even though it is the first country in the reuse of wastewater for irrigation due to the absence of alternative water resources.
