I am reading with interest about the county's Frac Sand Study Committee.

My hope is that you think long and hard regarding this problem. We are at the source of the Mississippi River. What we do here will effect many people in Central United States.

If we do something to the aquifers, the groundwater or change our water system, it will effect many people. Once we do it, it will be very hard to undo it!

Mining sand sounds easy but what are the ramifications? I am very concerned!
