Since December 21st, 2010 a Tijuana sewage pipe has been spewing raw sewage onto the streets, beaches, and subsequently into the ocean. Approximately 31-40 million gallons of the gooey green sludge have found their way into the Pacific and due to north-bound currents are making their way into the Southern California’s waters.
