In 1996, the Petra National Trust was contracted by Camp Dresser & McKee (CDM), the main contractor for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), who partially funded the project for phase I of the Water Supply & Wastewater Treatment Project. PNTís role was to conduct a full archaeological survey of the Petra Region (1000 square kilometres) that covered the area of the project. In phase II, PNT was contracted once more by CDM in 1998 to conduct archaeological supervision services during the construction of the wastewater plant.
Reports on the project were published in the Annual of the Department of Antiquities of Jordan (ADAJ), volume 42 (1998); volume 45 (2001).
