Two engineers working for the Eden Bay Resort were released Friday after they were arrested the day before in connection with flooding tied to the blockage of a nearby sewer.The activist group Beirut Madinati has said it discovered a new informal sewer earlier in the week that was spewing wastewater into the sea behind Eden Bay to deviate it away from the resort.Officials have traded blame for the incident, with Beirut Governor Ziad Chebib saying Eden Bay had blocked the sewer, but that Ghobeiri Municipality was also responsible.The sewer was reopened following the scandal, and empties out across the beach, into the sea.
