Frack Sand Meeting
The Land Stewardship Project held a press conference Tuesday on the frac sand mining industry issue.
Barb Nelson of Lewiston says Winona County's upcoming decision on a small frac sand mining site will lead to bigger sites, causing even more concerns.
Dan Wilson of Winona asked the crowd of about 40 people who is actually in charge of taking care of the land and environment in the county
Following the brief press conference, the people marched from Levee Park to the Kensington Building for a 30-minute meeting with Paul Van Ejil, the land acquisitions manager for Superior Sand Systems to voice their concerns.
