Sun, sea and sewage in the playground of the rich in Dubai

A noxious tide of toilet paper, raw sewage and chemical waste has transformed Dubai’s most prestigious stretch of shoreline into a foul-smelling health hazard.

The pollution is a blow to Dubai’s reputation as an international holiday destination offering almost guaranteed sunshine and clear seas.

The debate over who is to blame is also turning toxic, pitting the city’s wealthy expatriates against local authorities, who have been criticised for failing to stop lorry drivers dumping human and industrial waste into the ocean.

Hi!

Sounds just like WI, and most of the US.

GRB had to shut swimming beaches because of cow sh!t flowing into Green Bay from farms.

MKE had raw sewage flowing into Lake MI during heavy rain (most US cities have this problem, because we have decided it is not worth the money to stop water pollution).

The river running through Cleveland caught on fire.

Beaches in the Jersey area had all kinds of crap washing ashore, including used needles.

The TX coast often has tons of oil crap on them from the oil rigs/tankers in the gulf leading /spilling.

CA coastlines often have oil pollution, and let's not forget Exxon screwing up AK with their oil spill debacle.
