Deadline Extended: Sign the Frac Sand Petition

Extended to this coming Wednesday, October 22 by 5pm!

True Cost of Sand Petition signature pages are still coming into our office and more Wisconsinites are learning about why it’s important for the Department of Natural Resources to study the impacts of frac sand mining in our state.

That’s why we are extending the deadline for people to sign the citizen petition asking the state Natural Resources Board to direct the DNR to do a strategic analysis of frac sand mining.

You can sign the petition online until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 22. Petition signature pages can be mailed to 612 W. Main St. Ste. 302, Madison WI 53703 or scanned and emailed to sharbaugh@midwestadvocates.org.

We’ve talked to people across Wisconsin who are shocked that the DNR has never done a strategic analysis of frac sand mining’s impact on our health, the health of our environment, and our quality of life. It’s a commonsense request. Let’s tell the state’s natural resources agency to do the study.

Thank you to all of the Community Captains who have shared the True Cost of Sand petition with friends, family, neighbors and their faith groups!
