Mexico Deliberately Pollutes San Diego Beaches with Massive 143 Million Gallon Sewage Spill

Is this Mexico’s revenge against President Trump’s construction of a wall along our southern border?

Tijuana is a Mexican city located on the Gold Coast of Baja California, with a population of 1,696,923 as of 2015. Located on the Mexican-Californian border, Tijuana is part of the international San Diego–Tijuana metropolitan area.

Joshua Emerson Smith for the Los Angeles Times, March 1, 2017, that California’s state and local officials believe a massive sewage spill in Tijuana that is polluting beaches in San Diego County this month may have been no accident.

In a preliminary estimate, officials said about 143 million gallons of raw sewage spewed into the Tijuana River during a period of more than two weeks that ended Thursday, March 1. While cross-border sewage spills of a few million gallons are routine for the region, this is one of the largest such events in the last two decades, according to water quality experts in San Diego.

People from Tijuana to as far north as Coronado, a resort city in San Diego County, have been complaining of foul odors for weeks, prompting lawmakers in San Diego County to contact federal regulators as well as agencies in Mexico.

The U.S. regulators said their Mexican counterparts have given little explanation, neither have Mexican officials responded to L.A. Times‘ requests for comment.


Serge Dedina, mayor of Imperial Beach, a residential beach city in San Diego County, said he tried to get answers from officials on both sides of the border for more than a week with no response. Dedina said:

“This was like a tsunami of sewage spills. What’s worse is it looks to me like this was deliberate. It saves [the Mexican agencies] a lot of money in pumping costs, and ultimately, they can get away with it and do it all the time, just on a much smaller scale.”

The toxic discharge is estimated to have happened from Feb. 6 through March 1, while repairs were made to a major sewer pipe near the confluence of Mexico’s Alamar and Tijuana rivers, according to the U.S. side of the International Boundary and Water Commission. Baja California’s State Public Service Commission maintains the sewer-system infrastructure in that area.

“They basically said it was a bypass of raw sewage into the Tijuana River during the rehabilitation of a large sewer pipeline in Tijuana,” said Lori Kuczmanski, spokeswoman for the U.S. side of the commission, which oversees international water treaties with Mexico, among other things.

By Tuesday, U.S. officials said their Mexican counterparts still offered only scant details of the situation. They also said Mexico didn’t give them advance notice of the sewer-pipe repair project.

Dave Gibson, executive officer of the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board, said:

Was the spill intentional? Well, yeah. It appears they were working on the pipeline. I don’t believe that it was a question of it failing. At least a notification would be a good neighborly thing to do, to let us know what was coming down the river before it got here so we could alert the public.”

Gibson said a similar project in the United States would include efforts to prevent sewage from flowing downstream by using booms and then pumping the diverted sewage back into the wastewater system.

This tsunami of sewage spill is an environmental disaster. Where are California’s vaunted greenies?

To give you a sense of the magnitude of Mexico’s sewage dump, let’s compare it to the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster of 2010.

In the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, a total of 210,000,000 gallons of oil seeped into the Gulf of Mexico over the course of 5 months, from April 20 to September 19, 2010, i.e., 152 days — or 1.381 million gallons a day.

In the case of Tijuana’s sewage spill, 143,000,000 gallons of raw sewage were dumped into the Tijuana River during a period of 21 days (Feb. 6 through March 1) — or 6.809 million gallons a day.

The Tijuana sewage spill is an act of war by the government of Mexico.

They should force those sick-in-the-head people to drink that water,......oh wait....that's right, they already do.

This makes no sense at all to me.....This is a toxic nightmare......

Sewage polluting a state that does not want to be a state. California is trash the Mexican sewage just might improve the environment.

If Mexico did this intentionally.....doesn't that sort of make this an "act of war"?   .........germ warfare???

This is ONE shitty situation!

Another reason I stopped vacationing at the Surfer Lodge or the Catamaran, in SanDiego years ago.  This is not news btw.  They, Tijuana, have been doing this for many years.   

Add the cost of this cleanup to the price the ass-wiping Mexican government is going to pay us through taxes for The Wall!!!

Just like everything else that comes from down there.

REALLY? STUPIDO!! If it's against Trump they hit the WRONG STATE .. the insanity has no end 

No, they hit the right state for sure.

Mexico has been sending The United States it's sewage in the form of illegals for many years now

Brings new meaning to Mexicans going home to clean up their shit hole. Mexico is like gangrene, if you don't clean it up, it gets bigger and bigger until it affects all neighboring parts. Let's see if they intend on a cleanup or was this intentional?

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
