There will come a day, many years from now, when the quarry has no more aggregate to mine. The reclamation and trail plan, adopted by Alameda County in June of 2020, prepares for this day — benefiting the environment and habitat, and improving public access to pedestrian trails.
This graphic introduces you to some exciting changes with some coming sooner than you might think and at no expense to Zone 7 Water Agency ratepayers.
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.
Open space and habitat preservation.
Pedestrian trails will be extended along Vineyard Avenue and the North Livermore Trail, providing neighbors with greater trail connectivity.*
Landscaping improvements to improve views from neighboring homes and trails.
Major habitat restoration along a restored Arroyo Del Valle and throughout the property.
Lake A and Lake B will be transferred to the Zone 7 Water Agency at no cost to ratepayers. The transfer to Lake A will occur by 2024 and support water storage and stormwater management.
No mining in Lake A, located between Isabel Avenue and Vallecitos Road.
*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.
