WHO WE ARE

Save Lake LBJ is a group of concerned citizens who have banded together to stop the industrialization of Lake LBJ. This site was created to provide information regarding Collier Materials proposed sand plant in Kingsland, TX. It will be located on the Llano Arm of Lake LBJ on the Miles/Moss Ranch off of CR 309. They will be dredging in the Llano River arm of Lake LBJ using dredging barges and other heavy equipment. we are working very hard to stop this and can use all the support we can get.

 

THE PROPOSED PLAN

The current plan, as we understand it, would be a dredging operation in the Llano Arm of Lake LBJ, in combination with a sand plant located on the shore just west of Comanche Rancherias. This operation would run from 7AM-5PM, 5 days a week. They will use dredging barges to suck up the sand and pump it through a hose, up to 2500ft back to the processing plant. Back at the plant the sand will go through a dewatering process, and the separated water would then be sent through settling ponds and returned to the river. A similar operation in Georgetown, TX uses 6500 gallons of water /hour. Once the sand is processed and separated into different types, it will then be trucked out of the plant using CR 309. The amount of sand removal currently proposed would require a minimum of 120+ 18 wheeler trucks each day. Which equates roughly to one truck every 4 minutes. It's important to note, this plan will only remove sand from a very small portion of Lake LBJ and will not address the build of sand anywhere else on the Lake. The concerns are listed below.

120+ 18 Wheelers/Day

No one wants to look at sand barges out their lakefront property

The operation could use as much as 6500 gallons/ hour

Sand 4 stories high will constantly be blowing in the wind.

The disturbance of the dredging operation will push boaters out into an already crowded LBJ.

NOISE POLLUTION

People come here for the peace and quiet.
