PLU: Flood protection/international border protection/vegetation management
Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The project would implement a combination of mechanical and chemical vegetation control methods, to include mowing, cutting, disking, thinning, and applying herbicides within the TRF in San Diego, CA. The proposed action would preserve line of sight and reduce hiding opportunities within the Tijuana River Floodway in accordance with a 1980 Memo of Understanding between CBP and the international Boundary and Water Commission. Existing native and non-native plants within the project area obstruct the view of US Border Patrol agents, which hinders their ability to detect people illegally crossing the border in the vicinity of the TRF. Implementation of the proposed action would allow the CBP to fulfill its mission of protecting the US southern border.
