Nogales Wastewater Fairness Act
This bill directs the U.S. Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission to charge Nogales, Arizona, no more than an equitable proportion of the costs for operating and maintaining the Nogales sanitation project. The sanitation project includes (1) the International Outfall Interceptor and the trunkline, which is a sewer line that carries wastewater along the U.S. and Mexico border; and (2) the Nogales International Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Nogales is not obligated to pay the capital costs of repairing or upgrading the project.
