IB mayor reiterates fight for clean water in State of the City address
Dedina highlighted several of the city’s accomplishments in 2018, including improved and safer streets, a growing tourism industry and a declining crime rate.
Imperial Beach is the safest beach town in San Diego County, Dedina said.
Dedina also reiterated his commitment to fighting for clean water in Imperial Beach.
"There’s been a broken sewer pipe in Tijuana for three months," Dedina said.
That broken pipe, with the help of a series of winter storms, is responsible for sending sewage, chemical waste and plastic pollution across the border, into the Tijuana River and into the ocean in Imperial Beach.
“I would love to see the city continue to dog Baja California and the international water authority to make sure we get that changed.
I mean these are waters that our children swim in," Imperial Beach resident Laura Wilkinson told FOX 5.
The City of San Diego is the latest to join in on the lawsuit.
“I’m really proud of what the city is doing and how the city is working with other entities in the county and across the border to get things done," Imperial Beach resident Bethany Case said.
I know supervisor Cox is working to get another 340 million out of Congress for the entire U.S. – Mexico Border.
