The Awful Truth

Most people from San Diego have heard about the ongoing and worsening sewage issue in Tijuana, Mexico, but others may not have. When a pipe broke in March releasing 256 million gallons of raw sewage into the Tijuana River, people on both sides of the border were outraged.  Coronado Middle School’s broadcast program created the documentary, The Awful Truth, to provide background on the issue and underscore the devastating impact on San Diego beach communities. I was pleased to contribute footage from my time in Washington, DC, to this important documentary. Please watch this 16-minute video and share it to help spread the word about what is happening on our beaches. This is a bi-national issue requiring Washington's action.
