Re: Imperial Beach vs the International Boundary and Water Commission and Viola Your Honor, I request this case go forward and not be dismissed so the people of Imperial Beach May be protected from dangerous contamination at the US/MX Border. Because this is an international issue, it is the responsibility of the International Boundary and Water Commission, a division of the United States Department of State, to address the issue and enforce the provisions of the Clean Water Act.
