The site of the proposed Vulcan Materials Company Comal Quarry at the intersection of FM 3009 and Highway 46.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality says it can’t say anything about a recent district court ruling that handed opponents to Vulcan Quarry a rare victory against the agency tasked with protecting the state’s land and water.

The nonprofit Stop 3009 Vulcan Quarry and the Friends of Dry Comal Creek sued the agency in December after it granted Vulcan Materials an air quality permit to operate the proposed 1,500-acre limestone quarry at State Highway 46 and Farm-to-Market Road 3009 between New Braunfels and Bulverde.
