April 25, 2012 (Tijuana, Mexico) -- An estimated 2 million gallon sewage spill occurred yesterday in Mexico. The spill, which was caused by a broken sewer line in Rio Alamar drainage, started 12:00 PM and ended at 12:00 AM midnight yesterday. None of the sewage was recovered so all of it flowed into the Tijuana River.
