Coachella Valley Aggregates is located in the City of Indio, in eastern Riverside County. Located just a few miles from Interstate 10, the site is ideally located to serve the construction aggregate needs of the Coachella Valley and the Counties of Riverside, San Diego, and San Bernardino. The site is further enhanced by the addition of a concrete block plant and an asphalt plant.
A recent Petrographic Analysis (ASTM C295-03) summarized that the coarse aggregate was derived from an alluvial deposit, and was a mix of light to medium-gray granitic rock and gneiss. Minor rock types included schist and phyllite. Fine aggregate material was composed primarily of gneiss rock fragments, with lesser other metamorphic rock fragments, including schist, quartzite, feldspars, and other minerals.
Coachella Valley Aggregates is on the approved AB 3098 list, as shown here. Sections 10295.5 and 20676 of the Public Contract Code preclude mining operations that are not on the AB 3098 List from selling sand, gravel, aggregates or other mined materials to state or local agencies.
