Officials To Discuss Water Quality Monitoring Related To Sewage Spills
Local governmental stakeholders Thursday will provide an update on water quality monitoring of local beaches affected by sewage spills from the Tijuana River Valley during a meeting Thursday.
The citizens forum will be held by the International Boundary and Water Commission, a binational agency charged with overseeing efforts to stem ongoing pollution.
Keith Kezer and Dominique Edwards of San Diego County's Department of Environmental Health will provide an update on year-round water quality monitoring at South Bay beaches. Their presentation will also include analysis of interactions between the Tijuana River, Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Pacific Ocean.
In a separate discussion, City Planner Jim Nakagawa will address the city of Imperial Beach's general plan and Local Coastal Program, which were adopted in 1994 in response to state laws that require local authorities address climate change impacts.
