Last summer Urban Biofilter joined the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve and Earth Island Institute’s Restoration Initiative on a bi-national project to restore the Tijuana River Estuary Watershed. The proposed project would create an elegant solution to current wastewater issues by channeling and redirecting it to a system of bamboo biofilters at NOAA’s outreach office. The plantings would be done as workshops. This would minimize cost, give skills to the public, and act as a catalyst for a wastewater paradigm shift in an area that needs it.
