Border Sewage Scandal Update

This is another sewage discharge into the ocean at Playas de Tijuana.

The main beach in Imperial Beach was open today.

In Tijuana, work crews are trying to fix the broken sewage pipe.

An update from a local resident:

  • I just went to the worksite and spoke with one of the workers. They will be pulling the new pipe through the current broken one today. The new pipe is a very thick, heavy rubber (sort of like a car tire) tube that will actually line the inside of the old pipe. They will be pulling about a city block length of the new pipe through the old. I can’t imagine it not getting snagged half way through. I bet there will be problems, but the fix is going in.

We will continue to monitor the situation.
