Webinar: Frac Sand Mining – Fracking’s Hidden Connection to America’s Breadbasket

Among those familiar with fracking, many are not as familiar with frac sand mining — the process by which industry removes, excavates, and processes silica sand for hydraulic fracturing across the country. Much of this activity is concentrated in the Midwest region of the U.S. and, consequently, impacts farmers and landowners in that region.

Join Halt the Harm to learn from Frac Sand Sentinel’s Pat Popple, dairy farmer and impacted landowner Ken Schmitt and FracTracker’s Ted Auch. The speakers spoke to issues locally in Wisconsin and beyond and also discuss the current ongoing debates on impacts to health, residents, and the environment by the industry.
