The U.S. International Boundary and Water Commission, an arm of the State Department, is holding an informational meeting June 26 in Imperial Beach to talk about cross-border sewage issues.

One thing of interest: The commission will get an update on monitoring studies that have been examining whether sewage that gets treated at a San Ysidro plant is returning to shore or not. Answering that question could help the region better understand where its treated sewage is going — and whether the stuff that’s already being captured and treated is at all responsible for beach closures.

The commission is the agency responsible for ditching the Bajagua project a month ago. The private effort aimed to build a sewage treatment plant in Tijuana to expand the city’s sewage and water recycling capacity.

Information on the meeting is available on the commission’s website.
