[Fulano's comment: Only 40.2% of Mexico’s wastewater is treated before being dumped. Every second, Mexico dumps 33 million gallons of untreated sewage into the ocean.]

Not even getting into some of the "other" stuff... recall, some time back when hazardous waste was being taken to TJ ... to dump into the sewers ... lead and pcb's were very popular among others

Was much cheaper than dealing with "legal" disposal in the US ...

Not sure where they are with monitoring of "run off" and illegal discharges ... used to be pretty poor ... but, its been a long time for me
