The municipality of Tlajomulco de Zúñiga will spend an unprecedented 180 million pesos, about $10 million USD, to upgrade the capacity of three wastewater treatment plants, construct wetlands, install aerators and build a floodgate in order to clean up Cajititlán lagoon near Guadalajara. This is after 3 years of delay. During that time, massive fish died. The most recent fish die-off occurred in August with an estimated 40 tons of popocha floating near the surface. The municipality plans to use the dead fish for organic compost. It estimates that 6,000 tonnes of organic compost annually.
