The Cape Charles Mirror has received several messages regarding rumors of serious issues at Bayshore Concrete, that the company was “in a lot of trouble”. Information relayed to the Mirror revolves around word that the CEO and President Chad Saunders was released . The Mirror has been told that the issue was over “sand” that they had acquired for their manufacturing which was in some way contaminated; this has led to possible legal issues and environmental violations.
The Cape Charles Mirror spoke with Bayshore Concrete’s attorney, John Irving to confirm. Mr. Irving told the Mirror that the president had stepped down, but he could not comment further on personnel issues. Regarding contamination, Mr. Irving stated that in 2012 there was a lightning strike which resulted in an equipment failure; this also created a certain amount of fly ash (could not confirm the class at this time). Fly ash can be useful, but in this case, it had to be quarantined by placing it in separate pits. Analysis on the extent of the damage or contamination is still ongoing, Irving said. Mr. Irving told the Mirror he would provide the results of the analysis once it has been finalized.
We will provide more information as we receive it.
