The recent sand mining project in El Monte Valley has left many locals outraged with the disturbance it will cause in the area.

The project will take a total of 19 years and the mining will begin by the fourth year. Eighteen million tons of cement resources will be spread over 189 of the 530 acres in the valley according to sandiegocounty.gov. The demand for sand in the county is high, three million tons a year is imported from other counties.
