El Monte Valley sand mining 2019
Thanks. The dairy is widening its road -- not the sand miners,
according to Billy Ortiz with the Lakeside Riverpark. I asked after seeing your post, but thanks for the heads up.
Interesting point on the possibility of a border wall need ing a whole lot of sand. The environmental impacts of a wall may not be limited only to the border itself, but to anywhere resources for the wall are mined.
