SAN DIEGO (January 27, 2022) — Earlier this month, and seemingly overnight, the stench of raw sewage permeated the air along the border between San Diego and Tijuana.
It went on for days.
It was the result of yet another massive spill that sent millions and millions of gallons of untreated raw sewage from Mexico into the Tijuana River Valley just inside U.S. territory.
According to a report from the International Boundary and Water Commission, the flow began on Jan. 7.
On Jan. 9 alone, an estimated 13 million gallons of raw sewage made their way into the Tijuana River Valley; the next day another 17 million. Earth Day shines the spotlight on Tijuana River Valley’s trash and sewage
