The two rivers that serve the city of Tijuana, Mexico (the inbound Colorado
and the outbound Tijuana) are two heavily litigated, politically contentious, courageously border-defying bodies of water. Artificially yoked by a 118-mile long aqueduct that spans northern Baja's vast desert, these two conjoined entities labor to hydrate this rapidly and perilously expanding metropolis. CESPT investigates one particular segment of this vast, transnational trajectory of water from its storage at the city's picturesque reservoir, to its transport, treatment, remediation, and ultimate release into the Pacific Ocean.
