CEMEX to Revise Reclamation Plan and Not Mine Lake A
On Friday, August 25, 2017, CEMEX announced that it has revised its plan for future mining at its Eliot Facility in Pleasanton, California and will not resume mining in
This revision will be reflected in a revised reclamation plan that will also address mining operations that will continue for the remainder of the Eliot facility located between Stanley Boulevard and Isabel Avenue, Lakes B and J. Under the revised plan, reclamation will occur concurrent with mining. This will accelerate the existing plan of transferring the site to the Zone 7 Water Agency in a condition that include lakes, open space, agriculture and recreational trails.
“After a full review of the relevant operational issues, CEMEX has decided to not resume mining in Lake A,” said CEMEX USA spokesperson Walker Robinson. “CEMEX remains committed to conveying Lake A to the Zone 7 Water Agency as part of the Chain of Lakes for public enjoyment after restoring the site to a more natural and diverse eco-system consistent with prior land uses. We know our immediate neighbors will be pleased with this decision and we welcome their continued engagement in the planning process.
Our goal for our Eliot quarry is simple: To provide an affordable source of quality construction material for the region and as the site is retired from operation, restore it to a state that can benefit our neighbors for generations to come,” said Robinson.
