Winneshiek County resident requesting
24-month moratorium on frac sand mining
Monday, May 06, 2013 4:12 AM
I'm writing in support of a 24-month moratorium to address the lack of regulations for frac sand mining in Winneshiek County. During a moratorium, we can create regulations to control the scale and scope of frac sand mining, which will protect our roads and bridges, water quality, air quality, and local economy. Regulations will help us avoid damage to our finite natural and human resources so prized here in Winneshiek County. Already, a lack of regulations has caused unprecedented damages to the natural beauty of Wisconsin - let's prevent such damages from taking place here before it's too late.
