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 375 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, 1809 Blanco Road, 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

  • Commissioners’ Court should work with their constituents to draft and pass a meaningful, effective resolution opposing the quarry and directly requesting a Contested Case Hearing as an affected party (instead of the powerless, empty resolution passed on March 22).
  • The cities of Bulverde, Garden Ridge, and Spring Branch have already passed resolutions opposing the quarry.
  • Comal ISD and the City of Bulverde are requesting Contested Case Hearings as affected parties.
  • Kendall, BurnetKerr, and Victoria county commissioners have passed resolutions opposing similar plants and requesting Contested Case Hearings.
  • While we understand that the Commissioners have begun discussions with Representative Biedermann to begin developing legislative language to provide Comal County greater control and land use authority, we encourage our elected officials to seek constituent input during this process.

Thanks to the Comal ISD School Board for passing a resolution to request a contested case hearing!


Thanks to State Representative Kyle Biedermann for his willingness to support his constituents in this fight!

  • 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 contact TCEQ and urge the TCEQ commissioners to deny Vulcan’s air quality permit application number 147392L001.
