Mexico announces $4.4 million sewage infrastructure repair project
Work along the border will start in 10 days
The Mexican government says it will begin improvements to fix the Tijuana sewage flow problems.
Mexico’s National Water Commission (CONAGUA) says work to improve Tijuana’s sewage and wastewater infrastructure along the border will start in 10 days. $4.4 million has been set aside for the project.
The announcement comes just days after Mexico’s foreign secretary addressed the problem during a visit to San Diego. Ongoing sewage spills from Mexico into the U.S. have caused beach closures and illnesses for years and have prompted numerous lawsuits.
