Rock Crusher Concerns

RECEIVED Mon., March 14, 2005

Dear Editor,
    As a resident of Elliott Ranch in Buda, I am very concerned about the rock crusher operating west of Buda on 967. Our community is already negatively impacted by this facility and they are not yet properly permitted. Our roads are already dangerously overcrowded and it is only a matter of time before a tragedy occurs. In addition to traffic issues, this facility sits atop the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, which supplies water to thousands of Northern Hays and Travis County residents. We need regulations now for additional rock-crushing facilities in Texas. The current proposed bills in the Texas Legislature are a smoke screen for the real issues. Please support our cause and save our community. All we are asking for is responsible growth. For more information go to
