This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency convened an invitation-only meeting of the Tijuana River Inter-Agency Coordination Group. The group is comprised of 17 local and federal agencies to help guide the development of solutions and expenditure of the $300 million for the Tijuana River designated in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement. Along with the City of Coronado, the other local agencies are the cities of Imperial Beach, Chula Vista, San Diego, and the County of San Diego. Immediate areas of concern are acceleration of improvements, the responsibility for long-term operations and maintenance of infrastructure, and maintaining focus on the need to address Tijuana River sewage versus other cross-border pollution problems.
