No Toxic Air on July 2, 2011

This photo is the best representation of Lehigh Cement & Quarry's excavation for limestone on the internet. It clearly shows the extent of excavation done by the quarry operator in the last 70 years of operation and its extremely close proximity to the communities of Cupertino, Saratoga, and Los Altos/Hills. It is the single largest stationary source of toxic and greenhouse pollution in this region yet is only a stones through from expensive residential homes.
