Cemex reaches agreement with California clean-water advocacy groups

Cemex USA will upgrade its best management practices for stormwater at plants in Irivine, Fontana and Compton following an agreement with clean-water advocacy groups. The Los Angeles Waterkeeper and Orange County Coastkeeper filed a complaint in 2017 which claimed stormwater from the facilities raised PH and metal levels in nearby waterways.

Additionally, Cemex has agreed to enhance water-testing protocols beyond current testing requirements.

Colin Kelly, senior staff attorney at Coastkeeper, says: “We’re proud of Cemex for its commitment to improving the waters that our families and wildlife depend on. By capturing and reusing its stormwater, Cemex will protect our swimmable waters while lowering its water use in the process.”

Going forward, Cemex will contribute $55,000 to identify and fund future environmental-mitigation projects through third-party groups such as Rivers and Lands Conservancy, Pacific Marine Mammal Center and From Lot to Spot.

Viviana Franco, founder and executive director of From Lot to Spot, says: “We ensure that all our greenspace projects are multi-benefit projects that not only impact the community but also have social, health & wellness and environmental impacts.”
