Today at 10 a.m. the Allamakee County Iowa Board of Supervisors, in a 3-0 vote, approved the most strict frac sand mining ordinance in the nation.

It’s been almost two years since the knock on my front door warned me of a proposed frac sand mine just down the road from my house.  Many great people worked hard on this issue.

I want to thank everyone who has supported our effort in bringing this issue to light. I have met some wonderful people along the way and have heard many horrendous stories about frac sand mining and fracking, which only solidified our efforts.

Our group will continue to engage both locally and nationally on frac sand mining and fracking.  From the very start of this frac sand frenzy, I felt it was important to connect it to fracking and educate people about how the sand was going to be used.

The ordinance may be viewed at,
