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.
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.
