The preventive measures were flowing set, the three-Senate funding bills, the corresponding flows 19.5 million for the EPA address in the sewage, directly to the Secretary of state, a plan that addresses their effect, and directs the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) a report on its efforts to protect its agents from the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

San Diego County has been flowing with raw sewage from Tijuana, which for decades have. Last year, a pipe across the border in Mexico, broke down, causing millions of liters of sewage flow into the Tijuana River and eventually the Pacific ocean, the California coastal areas.

“It is absolutely outrageous and unacceptable,” Imperial Beach mayor Serge Dedina told reporters last December. “The biggest problems that we are concerned, this happens again and again and then the Mexican government does not inform someone. This type of coverage, and you notify us at the last minute, and then our children are in danger of swimming in sewage.”

“More concrete measures need to be taken to stop this decades-long problem,” Feinstein said in a statement. “Raw sewage overflows and other pollution of Mexico along the Tijuana River that pose a risk to human health are not acceptable.”
