An Iraqi Shi'ite shepherd watches his buffalos cool off inside a sewage pool during hot weather in the Al-Fdhiliya district of eastern Baghdad May 3, 2014. Iraq is now gripped by its worst violence since the heights of its 2005-2008 sectarian war, and Sunni Islamist insurgents who target Shi'ites have been regaining ground in the country over the past year. But despite the instability, daily life continues in poor Shi'ite neighbourhoods of Baghdad such as Al-Fdhiliya and Sadr City - a sprawling slum marred by poor infrastructure and overcrowding.

A Palestinian man holds a boy on a street flooded with sewage water from a sewage treatment facility in Gaza City November 14, 2013. Gaza municipality said they could not operate the sewage treatment facility due to shortages in fuel and power. Gaza's lone power plant shut its generators on November 1, 2013 due to a fuel shortage, a move that will likely increase already long blackout hours in the impoverished coastal territory run by the Islamist Hamas group. Power is provided to different areas in the territory in six-hour shifts since the closure. REUTERS/Mohammed Salem (GAZA - Tags: POLITICS ENVIRONMENT ENERGY)

Mexican sewer diver Julio Cu Camara, 52, kneels in a cage while putting on his helmet before a dive at the city's drainage system plant in Mexico City March 21, 2013. Cu Camara's job involves diving in the city's sewage system to clear blockages and repair infrastructure, on an average of four times a month, for about 30 minutes to six hours depending on the amount of work needed. Cu Camara, who started working as a sewer diver 30 years ago, uses a diving suit and helmet that weigh more than 40 kg to protect him during his dives. During his working experience, he has found dead humans, horses, weapons and car parts among other things. Mexico City has a drainage system which measures more than 7,456 miles (12,014 km) long.

The unusually high death rate in Haiti's cholera epidemic is slowing as people become aware of the disease and health experts provide treatment, the World Health Organisation said on Wednesday. The United Nations agency's key aim now is to prevent the disease from spreading south to the capital Port-au-Prince and the camps for homeless survivors of the Jan. 12 earthquake, from the northern department of Artibonite where it is concentrated.

A security guard stands in front of sewage ponds at the Qing River Sewage Treatment Plant which supplies water to the Olympic Lake in the Olympic Green area July 23, 2008. The plant is part of Beijing's Olympic recycling water programme, that officials claim now recycles 52 percent of all the city's waste water. The programme is part of the $40 billion yuan (US$5.8 billion ) upgrade to the city's infrastructure to host the Olympic Games in August. REUTERS/David Gray (CHINA) (BEIJING OLYMPICS 2008 PREVIEW)

Machine removes weeds from polluted Dal Lake in Srinagar
A machine removes weeds from the polluted Dal Lake in Srinagar May 19, 2008. The lake, which once covered 30 square kilometres (12 square miles), has shrunk to half that size over the past four decades because of silt, weeds and development, and is dying very fast, Kashmiri environmentalists say.

Yigal Master, a senior research development engineer at Aqwise, holds a "biomass carrier" at the company's plant in Yavne, south of Tel Aviv March 11, 2008. A recycling system developed in Israel by Aqwise that uses millions of small, plastic rings to breed bacteria and break down organic waste can be found in about 30 sewage plants worldwide. The company designed a water jet system that circulates "biomass carriers" through thousands of gallons of sewage. The carriers are small plastic rings engineered with proportionally large surface areas covered with a variety of naturally occurring bacteria that "eat" organic material in the sewage.

A recycling system developed in Israel by Aqwise that uses millions of small, plastic rings to breed bacteria and break down organic waste can be found in about 30 sewage plants worldwide. In a process called Attached Growth Airlift Reactor (AGAR), millions of such rings are propelled through the sewage, wearing away at the harmful waste.

Israeli factory workers look at sewage flowing into the Kishon River in the northern Israeli city of Haifa October 9, 2007. Heavy metals and pesticides are discharged into the sea under government licences, environmentalists say, and the company responsible for the sewage of the area's 2.5 million people is the biggest polluter in the eastern Mediterranean. The 21 countries ringing the Mediterranean share problems like coastal overdevelopment, overfishing and pollution but in Israel, long preoccupied with security issues, environmental awareness has been slow to take hold.
