Fury/others -

Do you have details on the sewerage system at the Burj, and wider Downtown area?

Thanks!

Hi all.

Hi Gerald.
I only have a very general drawing of the domestic water supply.
I have nothing on the waste water system - sorry.

Do you know whether there is some sort of central sewage system for the downtown area, or is it all collected by trucks?

Hi all.

Hi Gerald.
I don't.

Are you thinking it all goes to U/G tanks then sucked up by vacuum trucks to be transported to a treatment plant ?

I just can't see it - surely not here in North America anyway.

What's happening ? Toilet won't flush ?


Ray.
