SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego County is hop­ing to pro­tect its south­ern beaches by join­ing a grow­ing le­gal cam­paign to force the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to do more to stop sewage from spilling over the bor­der from Ti­juana.

Im­pe­rial Beach, Chula Vista and the Port of San Diego in Septem­ber filed a no­tice of in­tent to sue the U.S. side of the In­ter­na­tional Bound­ary and Wa­ter Com­mis­sion. The panel over­sees wa­ter treaties with Mex­ico. The Union-Tri­bune re­ports county su­per­vi­sors voted Tues­day to join the le­gal ac­tion, a week after the city of San Diego did as well.

A mas­sive sewage spill in the Ti­juana River fouled beaches in Fe­bru­ary. Pol­luted wa­ter has con­tin­ued to reg­u­larly flow across the bor­der into the Ti­juana River Val­ley through the river and a sys­tem of canyons.
