Each day, a reeking, contaminated ditch known as the Black Water is sprayed with insecticide to kill disease-carrying mosquitoes. The ditch is in Mexico, but the spraying is done by an employee of El Paso County across the border. The reason: Mexican health officials can't do it because they have neither the money nor the manpower. Farther south on the border, at Laredo, 25 million gallons of raw sewage are pumped daily into the Rio Grande River from Nuevo Laredo, the city on the Mexican side.
