Dubai Is Full of Crap - November 12, 2011, 09:59 PM

No literally. I never knew until now that the entire city has a limited sewer system.
How the hell do you build billions of dollars of skyscrapers and have oil pipelines all over the place and not think for a second, hey - lets build one of the pipes and have it transport pee and poop.

This arrangement as it stands now would be organized crime and unions wet dream. One work stoppage or strike and within a few days the city would be crippled, wallowing literally in its own piss.



Shockingly, Dubai does not have a sewage system to support its skyscrapers, along with the earth's highest building, the Burj Khalifa.

At the moment, human waste coming from Dubai is gathered every day from several thousand septic tanks all over the city and driven by tankers towards the city's only sewage treatment plant at Al-Awir. As a result of very long queues as well as delays, a number of tanker drivers resort to illegally dropping the liquid waste directly into storm drains or simply behind dunes in the desert.

A result of sewage thrown out into storm drains is that it runs straight into sea of the Persian Gulf, near the city's primary swimming beaches. Visitors are cautioned of the chance of getting serious health issues like typhoid and hepatitis if swimming on Dubai beaches. In this Youtube video you can see 1000's of trucks waiting to dump their loads.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

why?? is there some sort of religious thing about poo?
This is insanity...
Seriously.. How can they build the masses of skyscrapers that they build and NOT do something about this? I guess infrastructure isn't as glamorous? Or are they afraid that the building system is so corrupt that it would be a disaster to build a poop transport system?

I imagine that sewer systems are a bitch to add retroactively.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I bet you most of these trucks pumped septic tanks from older residential neighborhoods. When i lived in Dubai back in the early 90s everyone in the older neighborhoods had septic tanks whereas the newer built communities had a sewer system. I doubt that these newer skyscrapers have septic tanks. you can see in the video they are out in the desert. all theses trucks came from different regions of U.A.E

actually, they just had a big story about how trucks have to take shit away from the new huge building because (burj whatever) of the lack of a sewer system .

They are dumb fucking muslims, what makes you think they'd think ahead and consider a sewage system while they try to out-build the world? Allah will take care of their shit. Remember, these are the same people who will blow themselves up for the promise of 40 virgins upon their death as a martyr.

Yea, um, it's 72 virgins. You must be one of those dumb fucking old white people who don't know shit about other cultures. Shut up and stop making yourself look like an old bigot.
