The No Border Sewage (No BS) mission is to address and eliminate the sewage, trash, sediment and chemical waste that plagues our ocean, waves and beaches in the border region. We do this by raising awareness through outreach and education, while impacting policy through our advocacy work. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved!
In 2008, we helped formed a network of like-minded organizations called the Tijuana River Action Network. In this network we build consensus and work in collaboration to address the conservation and restoration of the Tijuana River Watershed.
Every year, from the middle of September through the middle of October, members of TRAN come together for Tijuana River Action Month, a series of education and stewardship events held during September and October to benefit the Tijuana River Watershed. The goals of Tijuana River Action Month are to mobilize a record number of community volunteers and groups to become stewards of the Tijuana River Watershed; and, to recognize key efforts and investments by public and private agencies, businesses, non-profits and community groups to protect and restore the Tijuana River.
Did you know that the Tijuana Sloughs (at Border Field State Park), one of the best surf breaks in San Diego County, is closed on average 60% of the year? And Imperial Beach is closed approximately 20% of the year? Why? Due to sewage contaminated runoff in the Tijuana River Valley that ultimately reaches our ocean.
