A few weeks ago, some videos of contaminated water being released into the sea of the beaches of Tijuana and Rosarito have been circulating in social media, so it is not surprising that the Civil Protection Department alerted the population about possible infections that could result from swimming in contaminated water.
This alert is extended due to the fact that the hot season is just around the corner and this is when more swimmers seek to enjoy the fresh water from the beaches. According to data collected by the Playas Limpias program, the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) has declared poor water quality in beaches including those of Tijuana and some of Rosarito and Ensenada.
On the other hand, according to a press release from Tijuana's City Hall: "the contamination of sea water detected in the city's beaches can cause severe skin infections, gastrointestinal problems, burns or respiratory discomfort due to the presence of lead found in some tests performed by experts".
Likewise, Civil Protection of Baja California warned about visits to dams, this for two important reasons: because these are federal zones and because, although many people do not know it, dams are not an entertainment center and on the contrary they are very dangerous, since you can fall into holes or get stuck in hidden trees and put your health at risk.
