Lehigh Hanson Cement Plant and Quarry

Although the hills outside the City of Cupertino have been mined for limestone since the 1930’s, and the Lehigh cement plant operational since 1958, this heavy industry is now located adjacent to residential neighborhoods, creating ongoing environmental, health and safety concerns.
