Legal Battle over Vulcan’s Air Permit Continues

We are still waiting on the Third Court of Appeals to set a date for oral arguments. Nothing new to report at this time.

Remember: fighting our permit-happy TCEQ and a huge out-of-state corporation like Vulcan requires expensive legal and scientific expertise. Now is the time to help us raise funds to continue the fight. Get your tickets today to our upcoming April 2 Bluebonnet Extravaganza Dinner & Auction.

If you can’t make it on April 2, we’ll certainly miss you! Please consider donating by mailing a check today to:

Myth vs. Fact

MYTH: Vulcan is a good neighbor, respects the environment, and follows regulations.

FACT: In Texas alone, over 80 formal complaints have been filed with the TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) against Vulcan since 2002. Vulcan’s Loop 1604 plant (pictured below) has cited over 35 violations of air, storm water, and wastewater regulations during the past several years. Violations included exceeding air pollution limits, failure to construct and maintain permanent spray bars, failure to perform benchmark monitoring, and various hazardous waste violations. A good neighbor would be respectful of our natural resources and follow the law. Clearly Vulcan has no intentions of being a good neighbor.


Thank you for helping to protect our families and preserve our beautiful Hill Country!
