14 • ROCK products • January 2019 IN THE KNOW "The aggregate industry plays a vital role in our state's economy. We are for- tunate to have many businesses who have been great neighbors for years. I am confident that they will support this common sense approach to do what's best for Texas," Campbell said. In May 2018, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) issued Vulcan the air permit necessary to operate Boerne Ready Mix – located on Highway 46, approximately eight miles east of Boerne. The facility will produce concrete to serve residential and commercial demand in the area and provide infrastructure for nearby homes, businesses, schools and places of worship. Located on only seven to 10 acres of the 34-acre property, the plant will fit within the existing landscape and topography and will have a land- scaped, decorative entrance that draws from area architecture and surround- ings. Additional landscaping, naturally vegetated areas and mature trees will provide more than 20 acres of buffer spaces from neighboring properties. The plan also includes a wildlife and butterfly habitat, rainwater pond, and picnic and outdoor education area. "We look forward to investing in Ken- dall County with a facility that will feature the best available technology and design to protect air quality, water resources and the well-being of our neighbors and the community," said John Berger, regional general manager for Vulcan's Ready Mix Division. NSSGA, NISA Partner to Create Industrial Sand Division The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) announced an agreement with the National Indus- trial Sand Association (NISA) to create a new Industrial Sand Division (ISD) of NSSGA. Members of NISA will form the nucleus of NSSGA's Industrial Sand Division. "NSSGA members have long known the value of coming together as an industry for effective representation of our priorities," said NSSGA Chairman
