Town of River Falls: Weigh in on frac-sand mining
The town of River Falls will hold a public hearing at 8 p.m. Monday, March 5, before passing a moratorium that will regulate frac-sand mining.
The town will work with its attorney, Bob Loberg, to develop a six-month moratorium.
This will give the town time to create laws to regulate the frac-sand mining industry in the town of River Falls, according to Town Clerk Ruth Stern.
The laws would regulate noise, dust, environmental impacts, and the use of roads.
