Dr. David Sodeman, Chief of Monitoring and Technical Services for the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District, will give a presentation on the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (SDAPCD) installing AQMesh sensors near the Tijuana River Valley and in the surrounding community after hearing concerns from nearby residents regarding odor impacts from sewage spills into the Tijuana River. The data collected from these sensors will be shared with the public and other agencies as another tool to address the ongoing issues within the Tijuana River Valley.

Morgan Rogers of the USIBWC will present an update of Commission activities in the San Diego region. The presentation will include an update on the operational status of the San Diego Wastewater Treatment Plant and impacts of Tropical Storm Hilary, an accounting of transboundary flows, and an update on San Diego–Tijuana wastewater infrastructure improvement projects.
