Investigations have found a sewage pipe leak was what caused water contamination at a residential building in Ajman.

Hundreds of tenants fell sick over the weekend and were rushed to hospitals after being exposed to the dirty water.

A task force was set-up by Ajman’s Crown Prince, His Highness Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, on Tuesday to find out how and why tenants were exposed to the dirty water.

His Highness Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi also ordered that alternative water supply be made available to residents until the issue was resolved.
