Skip to comments.Large sewage spill in Tijuana, Mexico, flows north of border

Officials in Southern California are crying foul after more than 140 million gallons of raw sewage spilled into the Tijuana River in Mexico and flowed north of the border for more than two weeks, according to a report.
The spill was caused Feb. 2 during rehabilitation of a sewage collector pipe and wasn't contained until Thursday, the International Boundary and Water Commission said in its report released Friday. The river drains into the Pacific Ocean on the U.S. side.
Serge Dedina, the mayor of Imperial Beach, California, said residents of his city and other coastal communities just north of the border have complained about a growing stench.
Dedina criticized federal officials in the U.S. and Mexico for not alerting people to the spill.
"Border authorities charged with managing sewage infrastructure and reporting these spills must do better and be held accountable for this act," Dedina said in a statement Saturday. He called for the resignation of Edward Drusina, chief of the international water commission, over his lack of attention to cross-border sewage flows.

They have been sending their sewage north of the border for some time now.
Diffrent day, same shid?
Lotta symbolism there.
CA politicians suddenly discover tons of sh*t are pouring into the country.
“We don’t need no stinking border fence!”
Screaming Liberal SJW: “It’s not sewage!! Why do you have to label everything from Mexico. It’s just undocumented water, you racists. Why is water always bad when it’s brown?!?”
EPA should fine Meheeeeco. Funds to be put toward that wall.
That’s standard Tijuana.
Screaming Liberal SJW: Its not sewage!! Why do you have to label everything from Mexico. Its just undocumented water, you racists. Why is water always bad when its brown?!?
Laugh out loud funny!
Undocumented poops? CA should welcome them.
I was going to post a similar thought, for 30 years their sewage has been flowing north, some has reached northern states.
Something like this could easily run into the tens of dollars of damage.

I just assume stuff like this is deliberate, until we can learn otherwise.
Mexico never noticed because most of their cities have sewage flowing in the streets and they’re used to the smell
Mexico has been shi**ing on us for years. Nothing new.
The River appears to be channelized on the Mexican side but not on the US side.
Just, ore of the same sh1t from Mexico.
Tijuana’s sewer plants have been overflowing into the river every time there’s a heavy rain for at least 50 years now. The one advantage for Imperial Beach is that it keeps the developers away.
