We launch a new feature today on the WisWatch blog: a roundup of the latest news in frac sand. It will focus mostly on Wisconsin’s frac sand, but also include some relevant out-of-town or fracking-related news.
The Center has been covering the frac sand beat since 2011, when the boom took off. See our complete coverage here: Project: Wisconsin’s sand rush
The latest frac sand news:
