One kilometer of the Tijuana River Canalization will be cleaned by civil society, the private initiative, the Tijuana City Council and the National Water Commission (Conagua).
The solution is in the hands of many and I am very happy that we are going to clean at least a kilometer of the canal, declared the council president of the Tourism Commission. All these improvements will be so that the city not only look more aesthetic for all people who live there or who visit us to get affordable dental bridges in Tijuana but also with the intention of having a city with fewer health risks, although there have been cases of infections due to lack of canalization hygiene, is a preventive measure.
The area where they will clean will be from the Garita del Chaparral to the Municipal Palace.
So far they do not have a defined resource for investment, but each of the participants will support something like dump trucks, trash removal and tow trucks, he added.
The last time that Conagua cleaned the canalization was in 2014, that is, four years ago, investing about 20 million for the maintenance of seven kilometers.
Currently, they have detected about 160 people living in the channel from the Chaparral part to the General Hospital of Tijuana.
“With NGOs we are going to channel the people who are in the canal but make sure that they will not return, hand in hand to clean and recover the top part to make a road walker,” they said.
The pointed out that unfortunately the indigents have taken advantage of the lack of cleanliness and security to make the canal their place to consume or sell drugs.
As a result of the clean-up day implemented by the Ministry of Public Security of Tijuana, 12 tons of garbage were collected and 4,470 square meters were cleaned.
The activity was supported by personnel of the Municipal District of Infractors, as well as people who are under arrest for any administrative fault. The day consisted in the cleaning and weeding of 2 thousand 850 square meters, 1 thousand 620 square meters were swept, and more than 12 tons of garbage were collected.
