Save Imperial Beach | Stop Sewage Dumping
PETITION: Opposing USMCA Comprehensive Plan- Stop the Sewage Dump The USMCA Comprehensive Plan will set in place the infrastructure to permanently pollute our public beaches from the border to Coronado. It will also place retention ponds of Mexico’s sewage next to our San Ysidro homes in the United States. ` The coastline at Imperial Beach Pier and Border Field State Park have averaged 66 and 170 closure days per year since 2003, respectively. Since 2019 those beach closure days have risen to average of 262 beach closure days. This is with the current rate of dumping of Mexican sewage at 25,000,000 million gallons a day (MGD). The USMCA Comprehensive plan is a false promise because it claims that a cleaner ocean will happen if they are allowed to dump more sewage off Imperial Beach. If fully developed this plan would dump up to 100,000,000 (MGD) peak out flow. This pollution increase to our ocean is completely unacceptable to residents, beach users, surfers, and fisherman. By signing this petition, I hereby communicate to the EPA and all Public Officials my opposition to ANY increase in additional processed sewage being dumped off Imperial Beach.

Stop Sewage Dumping
The EPA is Closing Public Comment on August 1st on its proposal to increase the flow of Mexican sewage waste off the coast of Imperial Beach by 3X current dumping out of the (SBOO) South Bay Ocean Outfall.
Beach Closure Days
Contaminated Waters Closed for Swimming
Under our current leadership we have more closed beach days than ever before in Imperial Beach and Coronado. How will dumping more sewage in our local waters better this situation?
Funding Failed Solutions
EPA Spending on Construction
Huge amounts of taxpayers money is going to be spent, let’s make sure it’s a true fix not another wasted effort polluting the SouthBay forever more.
