Proposed concrete plant looking at alternate locations

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The company seeking to build a concrete plant in North Lubbock is now willing to look at alternate locations, after the initial site met with some resistance.

Highland Concrete wants to build a new plant in the 400 block of North Avenue K. But critics say water runoff from the plant will pollute the Canyon Lake system.

The company is contracted for phase four of the Marsha Sharp Freeway project and says it chose this location because it is close to the site and zoned for industrial use.

City Councilwoman Linda DeLeon and County Commissioner Gilbert Flores requested a public hearing on the issue from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. They plan to hold a news conference on the matter on Monday, December 21st.

DeLeon, by the way, owns All-American Concrete of Lubbock, which is located about half a mile from the proposed plant.
