San Diego beachgoers can now ``look forward to someone protecting them,'' said Rory Wicks, a lawyer for the Surfrider Foundation. ``So far this outfall has been monitored by the people who own it.''
The U.S. section of the IBWC is committed to complying with water quality standards, said commissioner John Bernal. ``We are pleased that we have reached a proposed agreement ... to provide secondary treatment,'' he said. > News > Metro -- U.S. settles suit, will pay $2 million for ocean sewage studies at border, 19 Dec 2001 [cached]
"The studies the government will now do as part of this settlement are what they should have done in the first place," said Rory Wicks, a Surfrider Foundation attorney."Two hundred million dollars has been spent (on sewage facilities) and the beaches are still closed."
The commission's plant, which treats sewage from Mexico, has been in constant violation of its state permit and the federal Clean Water Act since the South Bay ocean outfall pipe became operational in January 1999.
The outfall discharges treated sewage, or effluent, approximately 31/2 miles offshore of Imperial Beach.The problem is that the effluent doesn't meet state or federal standards and contains contaminants that could harm humans and marine life.
"In building the border sewage plant and the South Bay outfall, the federal government assumed the source of bacteria was the Tijuana River," Wicks said."Then they were surprised when the beaches continued to be closed from high bacteria after the outfall came on line."
Surfrider sued to force the government to upgrade to secondary treatment and to have independent ocean monitoring to ensure the effluent isn't harming kelp beds or reaching South Bay beaches.
Under the settlement, only the latter is required.However, the state recently filed its own lawsuit to compel the federal government to upgrade to secondary treatment, a process that removes more bacteria and solids than the current primary treatment level.

We are very pleased with the fantastic representation before the Hawaii Supreme Court by Rory Wicks, our lead counsel from Coast Law Group LLP. He was extremely knowledgable on the facts of the case and all aspects of environmental law, and he was very compelling in presenting the reasons why the Turtle Bay Resort Expansion Plan is THE CLASSIC CASE FOR A SUPLEMENTAL EIS.
