Arabs of UAE Too Stupid To Remember To Put Sewage Systems in Skyscrapers of Abu Dhabi

Fucking RetardsUAE Forgot to Add Adequate Sewage System to World’s Tallest Building – All Poop Must Be Trucked Out 

Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, January 30, 2013, 3:18 PM
Nice central planning.
The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Abu Dhabi, was not built with an adequate sewage system. All of the human waste in the 829 meter tall building has to be removed by trucks.

Gizmodo reported:
Today I learned something that also defies belief: all the poop produced there has to be removed by trucks.
Let’s do the math here. The Burj Khalifa has 163 habitable floors. It’s designed to hold 35,000 people at any given time. Now, humans produce 100 to 250 grams (3 to 8 ounces) of feces per day. Let’s say 200 in this case, since these people are well fed. That’s 7,000,000 grams per day. Seven tonnes of poop per day. Now, add human-produced liquids (pee, bathing, cleaning their teeth…) and the water to push the poop down its miles of sewage pipes. I think a very conservative total would be 15 tonnes of sewage per day.
That’s a lot of poop.
And all of it has to be removed by trucks. The trucks take all this poop to a sewage treatement facility outside of the city. It’s the same with most skyscrapers in Dubai, according to Kate Ascher, author of The Heights. Talking to Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, Kate said that these trucks are in a permanent line waiting to get into the sewage treatment plant, waiting up to 24 hours before they can unload their crap.
The trucks have to wait for hours before they can dump their crap outside of town.
How does anyone get to be that stupid?

Or, just go watch Idiocracy.

From Ciccio:

Google "sewage in Dubai" and you will find 100 items, including a video of 3 miles of bumper to bumper 10,000gal."poop trucks". It is not that the skyscrapers did not connect to the sewage system, there just is no sewage system in the new development. Three miles bumper to bumper is about 500 trucks- 50,000 tons.

Yeah the idiots over there have had this problem for a long time.

One thing that the article writer could have even checked on freakin' Wikipedia is that the Burj Khalifa is in Dubai not in Abu Dhabi. It was named after Sheikh Khalifa of Abu Dhabi at the last minute when Abu Dhabi agreed to bail Dubai out during the economic crisis if they'd change the name of Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa.

The day of the opening ceremony models of the Burj on sale still had the old "Burj Dubai" written on them. Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai, was pissed since he had his ass handed to him by the richer Abu Dhabi.

Anyway, simple facts that sometimes escape people and make them look lose credibility.

It is true though that the crap is transported using trucks and trucks have to wait for hours or days because they don't have enough facilities to deal with it. In fact at one point it got so bad (can't remember the year) that they started dumping crap into the ocean right next to the beaches.

I saw poop floating around at Jumeirah Beach myself. They cordoned off the area and told people it wasn't safe to swim there (of course!) without giving the real reason. Newspapers were told not to cover the story of course.

Just followed the link and saw that the writer at thegatewaypundit was the one who didn't bother checking where Burj Khalifa was.

The math is equally piss-poor. 15 tons is 30,000 lbs, equal to about 14ozs. per person per day. One gallon of water weighs 10 lbs., the average flush is 2 gallons = 20 lbs x 35,000 person per day = 350 tons. That is just for shitting, forget about shower, shave, shampoo or even cooking, multiply that by ten. 100 to 1 they are running it straight into the ocean.

Nico, is the story wrong? I don't know the difference between Dubai and Abu Dhabi either.

I do not know if this particular story is true but I do know from reading in the local Arab press that the matter of waste disposal is critical, mainly because of the illegal dumping by the trucks who do not care to wait for 8 hour to unload. The beaches if Dubai are often closed - not the tourist ones- just the ones for the poorer locals - because some truck driver just dumped his load of shit there.

Can you just imagine just how many prayers are intoned by those truck drivers? They have to repel the bathroom jinns. LOL.

Pasto,

The story that they use trucks to transport sewage from buildings to disposal facilities is true. That's how its been for a long time and not just for newer constructions.

I don't know if this particular story is true but I do know that they are so incompetent over there that they might have not thought about how they would get rid of all the crap from the Burj.

Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the UAE and is in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, where as Dubai is its own emirate. An emirate is equivalent of a state. The reason I said the writer at thegatewaypundit should have known the difference is because what happens in Dubai doesn't mean it happens in Abu Dhabi as well.

Saying that the Burj Khalifa is in Abu Dhabi is like saying that Times Square is in Houston, Texas. I mean, its not that hard to know that that's not right.

Ciccio,

What!? Beaches for poorer locals? Jumeirah Beach is NOT for poorer locals (what Dubai are you talking about?). Its one of the most popular beaches in Dubai and connects with Burj Al Arab, one of the most expensive hotels in the world.

Besides, "poorer locals" are not kicked to the curb in favor of tourists or immigrants. Its the other way around. As much as I hate Dubai and the UAE, they at least take care of their own--something that the governments in the West should do as well. Not that the immigrants should be mistreated, but citizens should not be mistreated and immigrants given more rights (like getting healthcare being easier for immigrants than citizens!!).

Anyway, the first time sewage was dumped along the beaches, the truck drivers were deported. Since these truck drivers are all from poor countries (like India, Pakistani, Bangladesh), they are happier to wait in line than to have their @$$ deported back to their countries. There still are some who'd dump their crap along the beaches but its not the norm.

Hi Guys.

My first reaction is to laugh with it , but could it be they actually deliberatly choose for this 'option' because installing a water based cleaning system would be to costly due to water shortage?

Will, that's a really good point. That could very well be true.

If so, it only points to the fact that that nation is WAY overextended already.
