Border agency worst in gov't, risks water & floods
TUCSON -- A little-known agency called the United States Section, International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC) is arguably the most incompetent and abusive in federal service, according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). Lack of any oversight in this agency threatens horrendous water pollution, disastrous flooding and waste of tens of millions of dollars in federal stimulus funds.
The people and environment of Nogales, Arizona and the Santa Cruz River are particularly at risk.
