Frac Sand Mine Concerns

  • Selling the water is an important decision that will affect future generations of Kanab residents and should be carefully considered.
  • The decision should be made will full public input, including public hearings. This is our water.
  • The water contract should be made public before the public hearing.
  • The project will require a huge amount of water, nearly equal to the city’s annual usage.
  • The city’s water study did not consider the specific geology of the area
  • The trucks from the mine will almost certainly be headed south through the city. With 180 round-trip hauls, this means a truck every five minutes, 24 hours a day
  • SRS was not honest with us about its plans. The opening of a frac sand mine near Vernal, right by the fracking sites, means that almost certainly all the sand will be shipped south through the city
  • The immediate area is a beautiful recreation site, that has long been used for hiking, ATVs, and hunting. This will be destroyed with a noisy mine and processing plant operating 24 hours a day.
  • The chemicals used in the processing could spill over and contaminate the city’s drinking water.
