Description

On 7 April 1997, Comité Pro Limpieza del Río Magdalena (the “CPLRM” or the “Submitter”) filed a submission with the Secretariat in accordance with Article 14 of the NAAEC (SEM-97-002). The submission asserts that Mexico is failing to effectively enforce its environmental law with respect to wastewater from the municipalities of Imuris, Magdalena de Kino and Santa Ana in the Mexican state of Sonora, which is allegedly discharged into the Magdalena River without being duly treated to prevent the pollution of the river.
