Maybe we should shift emphasis to mining the Mississippi for frac sand.
1. It is already washed, eliminating ground water use.
2. It uses an underutilized transportation mode, barges, thus keeping truck numbers down
3. It would help cut sediment issues in the River and associated habitat degradation
4. associated environmental issues would be managed by someone besides money hungry farmers, townships, and county commissioners!
