The Quarry’s Legacy and Future

The Eliot Quarry, nestled between the communities of Pleasanton and Livermore, has been providing the region building materials since the late 1800s. The quarry’s sand and gravel can be found in the concrete and asphalt that built many of the Tri-Valley homes, neighborhoods, schools, parks, roads and businesses.

This is the quarry’s legacy.

As CEMEX looks to the future, it is time to prepare a reclamation and trail plan for the day when the quarry’s supply of sand and gravel is depleted – a blueprint for how the quarry will transition to open space as the quarry prepares to shut down its operations, years from now.

Lake B

Until operations wind down, Lake B and the Plant Area will provide quality jobs and tax revenue, and continue to be a valued local source of construction aggregate.

*The Livermore trail extension to the north of Lake A is not part of CEMEX’s amended reclamation plan. If the plan is approved by the County as submitted, then CEMEX will work with the City of Livermore to develop the trail connection.
