Pollution filled

Today WILDCOAST staff visited sites in the Tijuana River Valley to observe the “Calm Before the Storm” conditions. What they found was recently unearthed rubbish as a result of last weeks rain consisting of tires, plastics, textiles, electronics, and garbage that will soon make its way to our ocean as effluent. With over 5 inches of rain expected in the lower portion of the Tijuana River watershed next week, this “transboundary” pollution is going to breech the estuary and hit the ocean. WILDCOAST is working with partners to schedule beach cleanups in the area as soon as weather conditions permit.
