We are an all-volunteer group of neighbors banding together to protect our families and the beautiful Hill Country. But fighting a huge corporation like Vulcan requires legal and scientific expertise. Help fund legal representation with a tax-deductible contribution via our GoFundMe page. To meet our goal, we need 365 more donations of $200 each—but smaller amounts are welcome too! (And if you wish to lay low, donate anonymously.)

Contributions can also be made by check. Please make your check payable to our fiscal agent: Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance. Make sure the memo line states Vulcan Quarry. Mail checks to: GEAA, P. O. Box 15618, San Antonio, TX 78212.

Please contact key public officials. It’s a long list (in rough order of importance), but don’t overwhelm yourself—start maybe just one or two a day starting at the top?

Message Tips

  • Vulcan has a poor track record of compliance with TCEQ regulations and permit restrictions.
  • Because no air quality monitors are located in Comal County, TCEQ has no ability to monitor Vulcan’s air emissions or enforce compliance.
  • Impacts on traffic, property values, water resources, and other concerns have not been evaluated or reviewed.
  • They should work with citizen-led groups like Stop 3009 Vulcan Quarry to write and pass legislation to authorize stricter oversight of quarries and aggregate operations, enable limited local control, and implement additional TCEQ permit requirements and common-sense regulations to protect Hill Country citizens and the private property of individuals against the freewheeling aggregate industry.

Message Tips

  • All counties in Texas have the power to “enforce any law that is reasonably necessary to protect the public health” (Texas Health and Safety Code, Section 121.003). Furthermore, counties have the authority to inspect and monitor air quality, including entering private commercial property to determine if emissions from a plant exceed the limits set by TCEQ (Texas Health and Safety Code, Section 382.113). Comal County also has other tools at it’s disposal, but has neglected to use them.
  • Commissioners’ Court should work with and formally petition Senator Campbell and Representative Biedermann to develop specific legislation to provide Comal County (and other Hill Country counties) with a limited level of control and land use authority over quarry operations and other aggregate plants.

  • Vulcan has a poor track record of compliance with TCEQ regulations and permit restrictions.
  • Because no air quality monitors are located in Comal County, TCEQ has no ability to monitor Vulcan’s air emissions or enforce compliance.
  • Therefore the commissioners should deny Vulcan’s air quality permit application number 147392L001.

Thanks to the City of Bulverde and Comal ISD for supporting local citizens and opposing the quarry!
