Tijuana River Water Treatment Solutions Needed

Tijuana River pollution from Mexico is polluting beaches in California. Water treatment solutions are needed to prevent further problems.

Sewage pollution from Tijuana is likely to worsen whether or not the Bajagua plant is built. Thousands of new and existing homes in Mexico in the upper reaches of the Tijuana River watershed are not connected to any sewage collection system. Raw sewage from these unplanned communities flows into ditches and canyons that drain into the river.

The San Diego Foundation asked Briggs to evaluate the Bajagua proposal to help settle a feud among leaders of the region's environmental community.

For decades, sewage and urban runoff from Mexico have flowed into the Tijuana River, polluting beaches across the border in the United States. The International Boundary and Water Commission is working with Bajagua LLC of San Marcos to build a facility in Tijuana that would further treat wastewater first processed at its plant in San Ysidro.

Briggs urges federal officials to act within 90 days to assess whether two other sewage-treatment technologies – activated sludge and aerated ponds – could be built in San Ysidro at a price and timeline comparable to Bajagua.
