Comal County continues to provide new and exciting underground surprises. The proposal to convert 1,500 acres of Hill Country land into an open-pit mine and limestone quarry, and the deluge of recent applications to discharge wastewater into pristine streams and creeks, has ignited interest in Comal County’s natural resources and unique environmental features.

In June, local landowners discovered a new chamber in Double Decker Cave on their property. Located between the proposed Vulcan quarry site and Natural Bridge Caverns, Double Decker now measures more than 1,100 feet long, with a depth of over 100 feet.
