Frack Sand Hearing



A Wabasha County courtroom will be the site of a hearing on Monday regarding a proposed frack sand mine in Houston County.
                   
In 2012, Houston County Sheriff's Deputy Tracie Erickson and his wife filed a lawsuit against Houston County seeking to exempt their sand quarry from the county's moratorium on fack sand mining.

District Judge Terrance Walters dismissed that suit with prejudice meaning the issues in the suit could not be litigated again.

Monday's hearing is so the judge can clarify his dismissal ruling which said a 1994 permit for sand mining on the Erickson site was no longer valid.
              
The hearing is being held in Wabsaha on a change of venue.
