Construction and Industrial Materials: Essential, Beneficial, Sustainable


A steady supply of construction and industrial materials are essential to the California Dream and our quality of life. In the same way we need water and power facilities, a reliable, local supply of construction and industrial materials is essential to modern society.  Try to imagine a world without rock, sand, gravel, concrete, asphalt, and industrial minerals. There would be no homes, highways, hospitals and schools. There would be no bridges, dams, solar panels, computers, life-saving medicines or many of the products we use each and every day.
The environmental and economic value and benefit of our industry is everywhere you look.
