A committee has been formed under the directives of Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman and chairman of Ajman Executive Council, to investigate a water contamination incident in the emirate over the weekend.

The committee has been tasked to come up with answers as to how and why residents were exposed to water contamination at a residential tower in Ajman, state news agency WAM reported.

The committee, made up of government departments, members of the General Command of Ajman Police, Municipality and Planning Departments, Ajman Medical District and the Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Centre in Ajman, has a week to submit a detailed report to establish what happened and ensure such a "deplorable incident" will not be repeated, WAM added, without giving further details.

Al Nuaimi underlined the need to provide a healthy environment for residents of the emirate and directed the committee to include experts to ensure corrective measures have been put in place.

He also directed tenants would receive water from an alternative source until the issue has been resolved.
