CEMEX using less blue gold

A local company is doing their part to conserve one of the world’s most precious resources.

Cemex has taken steps to use a dramatically reduced amount of water at its wash plant at the Balcones quarry near New Braunfels. The international company has completed a new water recycling system that will reduce the plant’s water usage by 90 percent.

“Water is used by Cemex during the production process of cement, ready-mix and aggregates, as well as for other processes,” said Scott Ducoff, Cemex USA regional president for Texas and New Mexico. “We recognize the importance of water to local communities, like the 2 million local residents and businesses in and around New Braunfels. We are mindful of the very real water issues this area faces in connection with its continued population growth.”

Imagine Google Earth street view, but from the center of the surface of the Guadalupe River. A new virtual river navigation tool allows people to explore the Guadalupe River, from Canyon Dam to downtown New Braunfels, directly from their smart phone, tablet, or computer. The tool includes a tagging system for specific sites along the river, so users can find and mark favorite areas and location-specific tips for tubing, fishing, and paddling. The application, created through a partnership between Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Inland Fisheries, the Water Oriented District of Comal County, and the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited, is available through the FishViews water navigation program at the link below. FishViews has also mapped the Comal River, Blanco River, San Marcos River, and Spring Lake. tours.fishviews.com/public/guadalupe-river#0
