Statewide Regulation of Frac Sand?
February 13, 2012
The recent Supreme Court Decision in Zwiefelhofer v. Town of Cooks Valley brings up an interesting dilemma. Frac sand is needed in order to obtain oil and natural gas for residents in the United States from U.S. sources. If towns end up over regulating frac sand, it is possible that this source of materials could be in jeopardy. One solution may be what is being done for landfills: a siting board. If towns move too far, we may see new statewide regulation of frac sand.
