Dubai Municipality has intensified its efforts in environmental monitoring of sewage treatment plants operated by private companies.

The move is aimed at preserving the quality of the environment in the emirate of Dubai to ensure the health and safety of society as determined by Dr. Abdul Salam Mohammed Saleh, Head of the Environmental Monitoring Section of Dubai Municipality.

Dr. Abdul Salam said, "The civic body has taken notice of some complaints from the public regarding the odour emerging from areas of certain investment companies. We have already taken action on these companies and asked them to operated in accordance with the approved standards by DM in this field." "The municipality will never allow these plants to disturb the public in any situation. All private sewage treatment plants in the emirate of Dubai, including free zones and real estate development areas, should get the correct environmental permission issued by the Environment Department of Dubai Municipality prior to construction of the plants," he added.
