The wadi area is intensely used by farmers who use the water for irrigation, mostly for vegetables like tomatoes and melons.
Zared (also Zered) is a name used in the Torah for a brook and its valley (see Hebrew word #2218 in Strong's Concordance). It is mentioned briefly in Deuteronomy 2:13-14 and more extensively in Numbers 21:12-13, as the place where the Israelites camp on their final approach to Moab. From the context it is understood that it lay in Edom, south of the border to Moab which is marked by the River Arnon, modern Wadi Mujib.
According to Peter C. Craigie, Zered's "exact location is uncertain."
