Mitsubishi Expanding Lucerne Valley Facility

The Mitsubishi Cement Corporation is proposing to add another quarry at the south end of its existing operations in Lucerne Valley.
According to its application for the expansion on file with both the U.S. Forest Service and the San Bernardino County Land Use Services Department, most of the expansion site is located on federal land within the San Bernardino National Forest and will abut and encroach on the mountainside.
What is referred to as the South Quarry Project will have an approximate life of 125 years and cover 153.6 acres, including a 128-acre quarry, 2.7 acres of landscaping and a 1.8 mile long road covering 22.2 acres.
Today is the deadline for providing to the federal government comment regarding the scoping and analysis of the project. Mitsubishi will complete and release a draft environmental impact statement/environmental impact report by October, with the finalization of that document by April 2013
