The silica sand mine proposed for Hay Creek is to be situated in an area that is too heavily populated. It will sit next to a beautiful State Hardwood Forest with a well-known trout stream called Hay Creek flowing nearby. It is a health hazard and an environmental hazard. Red Wing with a 16000+ population uses 1.5 million gallons per day as will this ONE mine. A one-year moratorium should be enacted.Florence and Hay Creek Township Boards have met and sent letters to the Goodhue County Board stating that they want a one-year moratorium. Wabasha County has enacted a ban on silica sand mining.Goodhue County Board members should do the "right thing", enact a one-year moratorium on silica sand mining.
