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. There will be a virtual town hall on this topic on Tuesday, July 6, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. that is open to the public, but registration is required.

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.

This event will be held on Zoom with Spanish translation available. You can also watch the discussion live on YouTube.

Panelists for this event will be Nora Vargas, supervisor, San Diego County; Dr. Gabriela Munoz, professor, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte; and Fay Crevoshay, communications and policy director, Wildcoast.
