The UAE stinks
Open sewers are a problem in the UAE

A residential area in Sharjah, Bu Tina has been partially submerged in sewage for months. According to an article in Gulf News, residents in the area have asked their landlord to do something about it, but they were told to complain to the municipality. The municipality then said that it’s the landlord’s responsibility to hook the building up to the sewage system.
What’s wrong with this nation and sewage? Why are there so many areas with sewage problems? And it isn’t just new neighborhoods that have a problem. It’s neighborhoods like Mirdif and Garhoud, which are some of the first residential areas around. Why isn’t the nation doing anything to solve the sewage problem?
Does anyone know of any government plans to sort the UAE’s sewage problem out?
