frac sand mining

Holly Dolliver’s interest in nature began at a young age. After noticing the stinky algal blooms in Dunns Lake on her family’s farm, she wanted to learn more about why the blooms appeared—and what she could do to stop them.

In his sixth novel, Jerry Apps explores the contentious issue of frac sand mining.

The sand that you would find on a lake bottom or riverbed (left) differs from frac sand (right) on both an atomic and geologic scale.

As an activity that changes the land, large-scale sand mining has social as well as ecological considerations for Wisconsinites to ponder.
