Ghobeiry Municipality hit back Saturday at accusations that it was responsible for a flood of sewage in Ramlet al-Baida, saying the blame lay with Beirut Governor Ziad Chebib. According to a statement from the municipality, the flood was caused by the governor having blocked a drainage system that carries sewage to the sea. According to the statement from Ghobeiry Municipality, the governor installed an ineffectual drainage system instead of opening the drainage line that dumps into the sea, which according to the municipality led to Friday's flood.
