No Frac For You
The number of Wisconsin frac sand mining operations has more than doubled in the past year and the state leads the nation in production. But La Crossse County has not figured into the boom. The county has recieved no applications for frac sand mining at all. Why?
Nathan Sampson is the county planning and zoning director and he says another reason this county has had no applications could be zoning regulations. He says the county is not saying no to frac sand mining it's just that they want to make sure safe guards in place.
