Minnesota Releases Fracking Regulation Handbook

The state of Minnesota released what it hopes will be a handbook for local governments working to regulate the frac sand industry, according to the Winona Daily News. The 168-page report from the Environmental Quality Board avoids setting specific guidelines for monitoring pollution and instead lists the types of options available. It provides a variety of specifics for local governments looking to measure pollutants related to the frac sand industry, but concludes that there’s no single good answer for doing so.
