Residents of two localities in Doha have complained about overflowing sewage, which is causing severe inconvenience to their daily lives and also posing a serious health hazard. In the first case, a resident of the Rayyan area said that sewage had been overflowing from a manhole on the Al-Shaqab street and no action had been taken even though the matter was brought to the notice of the municipal officials about a week ago. He said the “flooded” patch of the street was just across a mosque where people offered prayers, particularly during the holy month of Ramadan. “There is a lot of foul smell in the air. It is becoming increasingly difficult to tolerate this pollution,” Abdul Rahim, an affected resident said. In the second case, residents on the Abu-Mihjan Street in the Masoura area said drainage water standing on the road had been a matter of concern and civic authorities had not been able to solve the problem. “It has been there for a few weeks now but no action has been taken,” Ajmal Ghafoor, who lives on the Abu-Mihjan Street said.
