Monday, April 28, 2008 | Regarding the story “Congressional Sewage Investigation Fails to Clear Water.”
As resident and surfer in Imperial Beach, I am writing to tell you that it is time to dump Bajagua. From the GAO report, we now know that upgrading the IWTP is a better alternative, one that has a more reliable timeline for project completion, and that would save U.S. taxpayers over $200 million. The facts are clear and the call by Bajagua supporters for further study is ridiculous. For years, we’ve had study after study telling us our beaches are polluted. We cannot afford to waste more time. What we need today is action: It is time to upgrade the International Wastewater Treatment Plant.
