Kuempel lends an ear to CLEAN
By DAVID DE KUNDER
State Representative Edmund kuem-pel met with 22 Bulverde citizens on Thursday afternoon who are concerned about Ingram Readymix's intentions of building a concrete batch plant in Bulverde
The meeting, which was called by kuempel. was held at Texas Fned Chicken at the intersection of U S. Highway 281 and Bulverde Road The proposed plant will be located across the road on Farm to Market 1863. Homeowners, property owners, parents and members of Citizens League few Environmental Action Now attended the meeting. Ingram Readynnx is applying for a standard exemption from the Texas Natural Resource Conser-vation Commission (TNRCO for the plant.
"I am here to listen to y ou." kuempel said. "I want y our input on this issue."
All of the residents at the meeting were opposed to the plant because they feared the plant will use too much water, pollute the air and cause more traffic problems at the intersection. which is one of the busiest in Comal County.
kuempel took notes while he asked and questioned residents about their concerns.
Dorothy Johnson, a landowner who liv es seven tenths of a mile from the proposed plant, said that the plant would threaten her water supply.

“I have lived here for 35 years." Johnson said “When we had a drought a few years ago our water level went down. My husband and I had to put tanks in to store water for our cattle. Since I also cut hay for my cattle. I am afraid that the dust (from the plant) will get on the hay."
TNRCC spokesman Patrick Shaugh-nessy said the plant would emit 3 tons of particulates per year, which is under the regulatory 25 tons of particulates per year limit for the standard exemption.
Another landowner. Cimenxi Wiley. said that the problem with the TNRCC is that they require a permit for air pollution but not any permits on water pollution. CLEAN members said that Ingram will use 6.000 gallons of water per day and that the worst case scenario w ould be 36.000 gallons Members of CLEAN said that these figures came off the Ingram application and that the water would be used to mix the concrete. Residents said that they have been under w ater rationing on and oft for many years
Wiley said that the Bulverde area has water problems and that Ingram's plant w ould aggrav ate those problems.
“The old Texas Water Commission named this part of the Hill Country as a critical water area." Wiley said. "This area is highly susceptible to w aret pollution and besides there is not enough of it here."
Tony Constanzo. superintendent of the East Central Independent School District and a Bulverde resident, said
that land values may go down if the plant is built.
“There is no doubt that land values will go down.” Constanzo said. “If that happens, school taxes will have to go up because of lost tax revenues.”
One resident said that Ingram’s plant would infringe on her right to live in a peaceful, quite environment.
“I do not want to live here for the hell of it," Mary’ Leroy said. “I want to live here for the fresh air.”
After the discussions concluded, CLEAN President kate Mathis presented a letter to kuempel asking him to help them in their fight against Ingram by talking to TNRCC Executive Director Dan Pearson.
Mathis read the letter. In the letter. Mathis charged the TNRCC with being biased towards Ingram when it held hearings on the standard exemption. The letter stated that the complete application submitted to by Ingram for the Bulverde plant was identical to the one submitted for its proposed Dapping Springs plant. The Dripping Spnngs plant was never built because of public opposition there. Mathis said the identical application was unacceptable because applications for exemptions must be specific about the site.
In the letter, Mathis stated that the
TNRCC staff allowed John Holm, Ingram's attorney, to substitute 20 pages to the application after the formal hearing was underway. Mathis said that these substituted pages were not supplied to CLEAN's attorney, Stuart Henry.
“In the opinion of citizens attending the hearings, the TNRCC staff attorney (Scott Humphrey) was completely biased against the protestants in his legal opinions and recommendations to the Hearings Examiner/Judge,” Mathis said.
TNRCC staff attorney Scott Humphrey refused to respond to Mathis' charges until the closing arguments for both sides are turned in to Administrative Judge Bill Ehret by October 13.
“I am preparing my closing arguments and I cannot comment at this time on that." Humphrey said.
kuempel promised to do his part for his constituents.
“I am going to go to the TNRCC and see w hat has transpired," kuempel said after the meeting. “I am going to explore what happened dunng the hearings process and find out what the TNRCC is going to do.”
