A battle is brewing between competing plans to treat Tijuana sewage that fouls San Diego waters.  Bajagua LLC , a start-up company with no experience in treating waste water, plans to build and operate a treatment plant in Mexico. Bajagua has missed important deadlines, and officials are questioning whether it can succeed.
