Letter about frac mining


Fri, Oct 5th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Frac Sand: What is the benefit/impact to Fillmore County? I have followed the discussion of frac sand mining ordinances over the past six months. Frac sand supporters have touted that jobs will be created to support this industry. It is common when a new business locates in an area that there is an estimate of the number of people it will employ. I would like to have an idea of the number of Fillmore county jobs this industry could create. How many more families will be able to live in Fillmore County and send their children to our schools?

I was pleased to see plans to limit the number of operating sand mines in Fillmore county. This must be a component of the final ordinance. The ordinance must be strengthened to regulate the location and the volume of mined sand. The most visible impact of sand mining in Fillmore county will be the increased truck traffic on our highways. How many more hundreds of trucks will be rolling through our towns as a result of this industry? There must be controls placed on the volume of truck traffic in towns where there is significant pedestrian traffic. This is a matter of public safety. Fillmore County has a number of business districts that are located on state highways: Highway 139 through downtown Harmony, Highway 43 through downtown Rushford, Highway 52 through downtown Chatfield and Highway 250 through downtown Lanesboro. Many of these routes also have schools where students park on the street and children are often near the street. The permits for sand mines must regulate the volume and routes of heavy truck traffic through our downtown districts. If the ordinance does not specifically regulate truck traffic, permitted uses have the potential of uncontrolled volume of truck traffic.
