Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, has directed that houses in the Kalba, Al Ramtha, and Al Quoz regions must be exempted from the connection fees for sanitation services.
The Sharjah Ruler also ordered the government to pay the connection fees worth a total of approximately $12.25m (AED45m).

Commenting on the sewage project, member of the Sharjah Executive Council and chairman of the SDPW, Ali bin Shaheen Al Suwaidi, said that the urban development and the population density increase make it imperative for the SPWD to develop a long-term plan for the sewage and irrigation system for the city of Sharjah.
