IBWC, Status of Tijuana River Infrastructure as of August 7th

The U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC) has been informed by its Mexican counterpart (CILA) that the Tijuana water utility (CESPT) has completed installing the 3 new “chopper” pumps at Pump Station CILA.  They are currently running 2 of them continuously and the other as much as possible based on available handling capacity at PB 1 and the SBIWTP. While still working to establish standard operating procedures for the new pumps it should be noted that flows in the Tijuana River channel have been reduced considerably.  Flows in the Tijuana River for 8/6/2020 ranged from 0.00 – 0.37 CMS (8.44 MGD peak).  It should also be noted that the peak flow was of short duration.  CILA and CESPT continue to work hard to prevent any overflows from occurring.

 Any further pertinent information will be provided in a future update.
