How one Utah community fought the fracking industry – and won!

We successfully fought against a Frac sand mine that would have depleted our aquifer and polluted the air. 

  • We engaged with local businesses, cattle ranchers, and other stakeholders. 
  • We collaborated with other community groups.
  • We organized the community to attend and submit comments at City Council and County Commission meetings.
  • We conducted industry analysis showing the project was not economically viable. 
  • We collected over 13,000 signatures from people opposing the frac sand mine.
  • We did a media campaign to bring national attention to the issue.

Kanab continues to be threatened by ill-conceived industrial projects and poor city planning. Keep Kanab Unspoiled works to find solutions that benefit the whole community.
