FFP rehabilitated the Muruj agriculure well, a well that irrigates 250 dunums of fruit trees owned by about 40 farmers in Jayyous, behind the separation wall. The Muruj well was built in 1954 and was not rehabilitated since. The project resulted in an increased productivity from 36 cm/hr from before the well completely ceased operation to almost 90 cm/hr after rehabilitation.

The works included deeping the well by removing 9 meters of siltation and treating it with acid, replacement of all pipes, installation of a new water pump, rebuilding of the engine, and fitting the well to be ready for electric power instead of diesel.FFP rehabilitated the Muruj agriculure well, a well that irrigates 250 dunums of fruit trees owned by about 40 farmers in Jayyous, behind the separation wall.
