Continued Sewage Spill Woes Along the Border

"On April 4, a software malfunction at the South Bay International Waste Water Treatment Plant along the border began the discharge of a significant volume of untreated sewage into the Tijuana River Valley. [...] Unfortunately, on Tuesday [April 24] a spill of similar size to the April 4 spill occurred when a pipeline ruptured on the Mexican side of the border, leaking some 2 million gallons of sewage into the Tijuana River Valley for about 12 hours. As was the case with the April 4 spill, this flow also reached the ocean." - excepts from Op-Ed in San Diego Union Tribune.
