Documents related to the contested case hearing and affected parties can be found on our Resources & Documents page. The deadline for TCEQ to receive hearing requests (October 15, 2018) has passed. Thanks to all who filed a request.

Our next step in the fight against the planned Vulcan quarry is the upcoming contested case hearing. This is a legal process similar to a civil trial that allows affected parties to present how the proposed quarry will harm their health, property, or natural resources. Residents, landowners, organizations, counties, cities, and school districts may submit hearing requests.

We recommend that everyone within a five-mile radius of the proposed quarry site submit a hearing request and request to be named an affected person. For families, we suggest a separate hearing request for each person in your household, including children.
