Grist Mill Aggregates faces opposition to California.asphalt plant

Grist Mill Aggregates proposed asphalt plant in Mendocino County, California, faces opposition from a residents group that has filed suit in the Mendocino County Superior Court,

The local board approved the plant operation in a unanimous vote at their meeting of March 17.  The plant was originally constructed as a gravel mining operation on a sandbar in the middle of Outlet Creek.

The group, comprised of neighbors and nearby residents, has expressed concern about potential run-off into the creek, noise and air pollution. The owners of Grist Mill maintain that they have substantially upgraded the plant, raised the level of tanks and ponds to avoid flooding, and otherwise mitigated potential environmental damage.

Currently asphalt for Mendocino roads is trucked in from Humboldt County , CA or other counties, increasing costs. Various people in county government have expressed the hope that local production of asphalt would allow for lower prices, and also keep county tax dollars spent on roads in the county.

A similar proposal to begin producing asphalt at Harris Quarry, at the top of the Ridgewood Grade, has been held up in court for several years.
