Cemex mine in California settles dispute with neighbors

A Cemex gravel mine in Lemon Cove, California will keep pumping water into a recharge ditch so neighbors’ wells won’t go dry, Tulare County Resource Management Agency director Mike Spata said Wednesday.

Spata told the Tulare County Planning Commission that Cemex and neighbors recently signed a confidential agreement to settle their dispute, which began in late 2013.

Neighbors complained that their wells went dry when the company stopped putting water in the ditch, while Cemex blamed the drought. Months later, the company resumed pumping.

The commission voted unanimously Wednesday to amend Cemex’s mining permit to require that water be put in the ditch “so long as there is available water in the mine.”
