TXI Riverside Cement



A class action lawsuit has been filed in Riverside County Superior Court against TXI Riverside Cement, on behalf of anyone who had been affected by contamination from the cement plant. The lawsuit claims the plant is responsible for residents' illnesses ranging from cancer to skin irritation. The California Air Resources Board indicates that in sufficient amounts, the chemical can cause cancer, respiratory problems, kidney failure and skin rashes, among other ailments.

In April of this year, according to regional air-quality officials, dust from the plant contained unacceptable levels of hexavalent chromium. The contaminant is most notably responsible for the contamination, and subsequent class action lawsuit by Hinkley residents, which resulted in a settlement of $333 million paid by Pacific Gas and Electric. TXI has been cited for violations by the regional air district, who traced the contaminated dust back to TXI, which they report is about 20 times the acceptable limit. TXI has also been ordered to control the dust.

I work across the street from the cement plant (1772 Container Cir.). I’ve been there since 2004. I’ve had a chronic cough for about 7 years now. I finally went to the doctor and was diagnosed with COPD. I have never smoked in my life. I feel the cement plant is responsible.

I spent the first twenty years in Bloomington,california and I have been sick all my life from severe hives that covered my body to shingles, nervous system issues. Before my mother died she said that some years earlier she had heard something about a class action against Portland cement for contamination to the canal that I had played in and ate the crawdads that were in the canal. Just wondering? If anyone has heard anything please contact me.

I moved to Bloomington CA in 1989 after living there until 1994 I developed asthma and could no longer live there. So I picked up my household and moved to Brookings OR. Since then I've developed severe problems with my lungs and am on oxygen 24 hours 7 days a week. It has been especially difficult this year. I had a feeling that the Cement plant was causing my symptoms back then and now. Please help me find out if I'm eligible for any part of the lawsuit funds.
Thank you.
