A private management contractor was introduced to Amman, along with a form of economic regulation. The paper investigates the status of water supply service and regulatory arrangements with respect to poor and vulnerable consumers. It identifies specific regulatory challenges. In its extremes of connection coverage, water scarcity and population, the management of water supply presages the pro-poor water service challenge of many economies irrespective of the extent to which they may achieve the access targets of the Millenium Development Goals
