Apac Texas to expand Marble Falls quarry

Apac Texas plans to expand its Marble Falls quarry reports the Daily Tribune.

Apac Texas, in northern Marble Falls, re-submitted an application request for an amendment from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that would increase its output of rock by 1.3 million tons per year and clear the way for another rock crusher on that property, officials said.

The quarry efforts to expand in two areas in Burnet County has met with local opposition. In the new application, Apac proposed increasing the amount of rock mined from 7.7 million tons to 9 million tons, according to a commission statement Aug. 5.

On June 7, the company withdrew a permit amendment request that would have allowed it to grow its output from 7.7 million tons per year to 12 million tons per year. Before the permit withdrawal, Burnet County Judge James Oakley and state Rep-elect Terry Wilson of District 20 also met with TCEQ staff to express concerns with the application.

Oakley said officials will continue to monitor the new request. “The first one they put through, it had some problems with it. I’m glad to see that got pulled,” Oakley said. “The new application is a little bit of a reduced scope and, hopefully, compliant with the TCEQ guidelines.

“It’s not the county’s authority to approve or disapprove land use, but what we want to make sure that state guidelines are followed,” Oakley said.
