I am pleased to announce that Minnesota’s state bar magazine, Bench and Bar, has just published and article by me and a colleague of mine at the Environmental Law Group, Susan Weins, all about the silica or “frac” sand boom taking place in Minnesota. There is no actual “fracking” going on in Minnesota, but we do have one of North America’s richest deposits of silica sand, vast quantities of which are required for hydraulic fracturing (i.e. fracking). Here s a slink to the the silica sand article.  Thanks! Advertisements
