CEMEX Construction Materials Pacific, LLC (CEMEX), was ordered to pay $37,000 as part of a civil environmental settlement.
The settlement, entered into without admission of liability, encompassed strict liability violations of the hazardous waste control law, unfair competition law, and depositing deleterious substances into the waters of the state.

CEMEX cleaned up the spill and cooperated with authorities to come into compliance.
Under the terms of the final judgment, CEMEX agreed to pay $37,000 as civil penalties and costs to the Department of Toxic Substances Control, the Oxnard Fire Department, and the District Attorney’s Office, as well as a filing fee to the Superior Court. CEMEX is also enjoined from violating the hazardous waste control law, unfair competition law, and depositing deleterious substances into state waters.
