I would like to draw the attention of authorities to the presence of a large, dirty and stagnant pool of water in a very populated residential area in Muweilah, Sharjah.
This pool has been there for the past few months and has only grown in size due to the rain.
It is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. These insects can prove to be a serious health hazard in the making, especially since there are lots of buildings — and residents — nearby. I hope that my community report may help to improve the situation for my neighbours [and residents in my] community.
I request [that] the [concerned] authorities... drain the pool at the earliest possible time.
