One River, Two Countries: Solving the Tijuana River Pollution Problem

The polluted Tijuana River regularly spills trash and raw sewage from Tijuana into San Diego, and for decades no international treaty or action has stopped it. We can’t totally prevent a river from flowing but we can unpack the reasons why it’s such a problem.

During this virtual town hall, Voice of San Diego environment reporter MacKenzie Elmer and editor Vicente Calderón will discuss with experts from both sides of the border what we know so far about the issue and what can be done.
