Report Questions Calif-Mexico Border Sewage Plans

A new federal report says neither a government plan nor a competing private venture can meet a Sept. 30 deadline to treat sewage from Tijuana, Mexico, that flows into the United States.

The report by the Government Accountability Office finds that the government's plan is cheaper, but that the Bajagua  LLC plan would be done about 10 months earlier. It also finds the government's time and cost estimates slightly more realistic than those provided by private Bajagua, which has the support of many San Diego House members.

Bajagua wants to build a new sewage plant in Tijuana while the binational International Boundary and Water Commission wants to upgrade an existing one in San Ysidro.
