PRESS RELEASE: Marketing & Communications (619) 686-6388 on .

MC 9.28.17 IB Border Sewage group photoThe San Diego Unified Port District and City of Chula Vista are joining the City of Imperial Beach in demanding immediate federal action to halt the flow of toxic waste and sewage from the Tijuana River to the Pacific Ocean, and the State Lands Commission has issued a declaration of interest in the local efforts to combat pollution.

Today, the Port of San Diego and City of Chula joined with the City of Imperial Beach in delivering a Notice of Intent to Sue to the International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC) and Veolia Water North America (Veolia) over their significant, longstanding violations of two U.S. laws designed to protect water quality and public health, the Clean Water Act and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, in their operation of the South Bay International Wastewater Treatment plant.  The communities have been working for years to convince the IBWC and Veolia to correct these violations and take swift action to stem, collect and treat water pollution flowing through their facilities in the Tijuana River Valley. Had they done so, litigation could likely have been avoided.
