SAN DIEGO — The agency tasked with overseeing wastewater infrastructure in the Tijuana River Valley will mitigate and address cross-border water flows, per a settlement announced Tuesday regarding millions of gallons of wastewater that poured into the San Diego region from Mexico.

"Every time it rains and the sewer water gets in there, I can't come down to the beach, I get flare ups," said Keith Thrall. 

 

Thrall lives just a flew blocks from Imperial Beach and he has asthma and his breathing issues get noticeably worse after it rains.   

"Within two, three days I start building up where I have to use my Albuterol just to keep breathing," said Thrall.
